Girl Ray share WWII inspired video for ‘Stupid Things’
The indie-pop trio Girl Ray have shared the brilliant new video for the harmony heavy track ‘Stupid Things’ which landed last month. The song is a ditty about “crushing really hard on someone, and finding myself doing fucking ridiculous things to feel like we’ve got some kind of connection.” Says Poppy Hankin. The video takes a view on many recent films to apply this logic.
Hankin said of the video “We’d always thought a period drama influenced music video would be really fun to film. So we decided to get our Keira Knightley on and do a WWII romance.” Dreams really do come true then. The upstairs downstairs vibe of the video weirdly works alongside the ditty, as ‘Stupid Things’ gently swings along.
The video follows the announcement that the band will be adding another headline London show following on from their sell-out at the Lexington they’ll also be playing Scala. This among a whole host of festival slots means that Girl Ray will be singing in your dreams for many summer nights to come.
