TORO Y MOI - LOW SHOULDER
From YouTube: For the video to Toro Y Moi's latest single "Low Shoulder" the directors Elisha Smith-Leverock and Chris Murdoch have drawn inspiration from everything from pulp magazines and Cinderella to sploshing and mono-brows. It's a nod to Italo-horror flics form the 70s and 80s. It features an appearance by 60s it-girl Daphne Sherman, wife of the legendary mod tailor Ben Sherman, who stars as a demented ballroom dancing reject/ waitress.Can't express how much I love this band. I've been listening this album up and down for months now and I still can't get enough. It's pretty good, like in the “potentially-in-my-top-five-of-2010” kind of way.
According to Chaz the song was written for his girlfriend asking her to not fall asleep whilst driving. We based the video on the idea of this sleep-deprived girl calling at a roadside diner for a coffee. Next thing you know she's semi-conscious and experiencing some really weird sh**"
Low Shoulder was shot in studio and on location at the Marina Cafe on Mare Street, Hackney on a very low budget with the help of a rather energetic and like-minded crew.
