Jake Matos has taken the directing reigns for Pistol Shrimp‘s new video, ‘Between Us’.
The beautifully shot video by the 17 year old is about being young, free, having fun and doing what you love. It follows two boys and two girls on their separate dream adventures. One of the boys wonders through a quiet woodland capturing pictures at every opportunity and the other does 360s on his quad bike, whilst the girls dance and play with colourful smoke flares.
The track has an electro-synth backing with layered vocals sprinkled on top, and includes those dreamy hooks that Pistol Shrimp are renowned for.
‘Between Us’ is their strongest and most mainstream track yet and the boys have kindly offered it up for free download on their Facebook page.
Pistol Shrimp is an electro pop duo formed of UK-based electronic musician David Burreddu and US-based singer/songwriter Aaron Peterson.
The writing and production of the Pistol Shirmp sound is maintained over email, but despite the distance between them, the duo effortlessly balances colourful indie pop, built up of catchy analog synthesiser leads, rich baselines and infectious vocals hooks, with epic synth filled ballads with hard hitting drums, beautiful pads and layered vocals soaked in reverb.
