Island Records

Sälen

The east London trio of Ellie Kamio, Paul Taylor and Simon Milner came together last year, introducing themselves with the straight-talking IILWMBF (I’m In Love With My Best Friend), Diseasey, which topped Spotify UK’s Viral 50 charts earlier this year, and reached #8 globally, and last month’s acclaimed The Drwg.

Following their sold out show at London’s Kamio, Sälen released the video for acclaimed new single ;Copper Kiss’. Starring the band themselves and a cast of snakes and wildlife, director and photographer Can Evgin has created a woozy, claustrophobic visual that walks the line between the real, the digital and the hallucinatory. Copper Kiss is out now on iTunes and Spotify.

“We really wanted live animals in the video but we weren’t allowed because of costs.” the band tell Stereogum. “So after acting like toddlers and throwing our toys out the pram, we got bare snakes. They were pretty well behaved, except the black one which kept slithering off the bed when it thought no one was looking. A huge thank you to Can Evgin and everyone else involved. Especially Trevor the snake handler.”
