NEW MUSIC: Speedboat - Dog Toy
08 Jan 2021
Speedboat release their latest single from their debut EP
Brighton brothers Johnny and Will Griffiths, better known as Speedboat, have released their latest single 'Dog Toy'. The track has been plucked from their upcoming debut EP 'Split The Bill', set for release on 12th February via 0800-MOSHI-MOSHI.
The release of 'Dog Toy' was accompanied by a superbly eccentric music video. Looking like it's been pulled straight out of the 80s, the combination of video and song perfectly encapsulate the duos widescreen new wave-inspired synth pop.
The brothers said on the track: "The video's wackiness is only surpassed by the sheer ambition of Dinomoves’ genre bending, reality jumping visual interpretation. With minimum budget and maximum effort - the video reflects the blurred themes that the track explores and takes you on a trip of kicks and pleasure".
Director Charlie Fairbairn adds “Dog Toy exists somewhere between Agnès Varda and Roadhouse. My video gear still smells of tanning oil. If Citizen Kane was a Thanksgiving Turkey then Dog Toy is a "Rubber Chicken". A movie that wishes it was a real movie, with real lights and real cameras and real film stars.”
