The Wave Pictures are delighted to share the video for their new single ‘Shelly’ which is taken from their recent album Look Inside Your Heart (out now via Moshi Moshi). The video drops on the eve of the band starting their next UK tour this month. The run of dates includes a Cambridge stop on January 24th, at The Portland, with tickets available here.
Singer and guitarist Dave Tattersall describes the track as, “A love song in the laid back style of late 70s Grateful Dead only with even better lyrics.”
The video was shot in Bethnal Green, London by Fraser Watson (who also shot the last single). Dave explains further; “Inspired by the dress sense of Queen, after watching ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ while on tour in Germany, we decided to go as glamorous as The Wave Pictures are able. The results speak for themselves. As if the suits and sequins weren’t enough, we were lucky that Holly Holden was able to attend the video shoot to add some genuine class, both fashion-wise and singing her backing vocal parts as on the recording.”
The video features Holly Holden, who sang backing vocals on the song (and various other tracks on the album including “Look Inside Your Heart” and “Hazy Moon”.) Holly said of the experience, “It was a huge pleasure to be invited to sing on the record and live out all my rock and roll backing vocalist dreams. The Booze Cube is one of my favourite places to record, it’s like singing in a living room full of friends after an evening at the pub.”
