Punk On The Dance Floor Video

Filmed over a gruelling 16 hour day for a miserly $160 at Trace Elements parkour warehouse in Melbourne, Australia, the music video for Punk On The Dance Floor was directed by sonicanimation stalwart and stunt actor Morgan Evans who has featured in Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit and the new Mad Max film. He is also the man behind the concept for the Theophilus Thistler and Robert Rollie ‘technotubbies’ - yes we have him to thank! Director of photograpy is Daniel Cahill (Circle Pit, Matt Glass).

Morgan also stars as the ‘punk’ in the clip and watch for the dance moves by the girl ’with the thighs’ in the orange short legged onesie. Quirky fun stuff. Are you the typical Punk On The Dance Floor?

 

AND HAVE A LISTEN TO THE SWEET NEW REMIXES OF THE SONG BY SANGERS AND RA AND BAD COP.

I Will Be Twisted Music Video

We thought it would be a good idea to invite the audience members under the Big Top at last years Homebake Festival in Sydney to use their smart phones and cameras to film the performance of our song I Will Be Twisted. Then to upload the footage to us so we could edit it together into our new music video. As you can expect some of the footage was great and some looked like it was done by a complete amateur - which is was. Some was even submitted upside down, nice...!

Anyway the video is done, we are really happy with the result so thank you to everyone who submitted footage,

and here it is:
