Rising Scottish rock outfit Vukovi go behind the scenes of their dizzying new ‘Animal’ video, shot in 360 degrees using DIY techniques, in this new ‘making-of’ video.

“We had a very small budget to work with for Animal, and some big ideas! But in true VUKOVI fashion we made it work,” reveals frontwoman Janine Shilstone. “The spinny camera effect cost us nothing instead of hundreds of pounds to rent. Andy, who filmed it, made the contraption with his dad from a fish tank engine-thing!”

Due May 13th through Lab Records, ‘Animal’ sees Vukovi unleashing their feral side, pounding through three and a half minutes of perfect power-pop-rock that stomps along like the fortified gates have just crashed down around the zoo and the beasts are free. “It’s about karma and the animalistic qualities of it,” explains Janine. “Once you’re on its wanted list there’s no escaping it. It’s a feisty, energetic and powerful song to us, which I think musically reflects well with the meaning of it.”

The music video for ‘Animal’ allows Vukovi to go suitably wild, smeared in tribal make-up, the camera rotates around the band, harnessing their energy and feeding it directly into our senses. “We wanted the video to be visually animalistic as well, hence why we wanted to transform ourselves away from our natural look,” continues Janine. “I like the thought of us looking slightly demonic to tie in with the karma theme.”
