Shiny Darkly unveil new video + announce UK tour

September 25, 2014




Watch new video for ‘Soft Skin’
UK live dates start 6th October

Copenhagen’s Shiny Darkly have unveiled the new video for their debut UK single ‘Soft Skin’, released Oct 6th via Crunchy Frog Records. The video is the perfect accompaniment to the dark drama of the track and was directed by Frederik Valentin, who has made videos for Lust for Youth and his own act Complicated Universal Cum.

The striking video took its inspiration from an old photograph of the legendary band The Stranglers, whilst making references to images from rock’n’roll history, including the iconic Sticky Fingers front cover and Thin White Duke era Bowie. Watch the video now on YouTube.

Having already played shows across Europe and the US, performing at festivals including Roskilde Festival, Iceland Airwaves, Reeperbahn Festival, Eurosonic Festival and SXSW, Shiny Darkly have their sights firmly set on the UK. ‘Soft Skin’ is the first track to be taken from the band’s debut album Little Earth, due for release in 2015.

Shiny Darkly’s brand of psyche indebted post-punk takes discordant guitar stabs and synth drones with nightmarishly catchy choruses. The band bring their intense live show to the UK on Oct 6th the release of ‘Soft Skin’.

Shiny Darkly are Kristoffer Bech (vocals and guitar), Mads Lassen (drums) and Oliver Matthew Volz (bass guitar). They dress in black.
