Insecure Men have unveiled the video to ‘I Don’t Wanna Dance (With My Baby)’, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album which is released on Friday 23rd February 2018 on Fat Possum.
The video, shot in Blackpool, was directed by renowned London-based independent production team Sharp Payne. Talking about the video, director Jak payne said: “Me and Saul had spoken about making videos that felt dated and kitsch, and kind of invoked this old British seaside culture. We found a kid’s ballroom dancing competition up in Blackpool, and it worked with the style and lyrics of the song. I really liked the pageantry of the whole event, these 12 year olds dolled up in make-up and these very 70s, bright dresses.
“There’s something bizarre and unsettling about it, it feels cartoonish in how exaggerated everyone’s out-fits and expressions are, which, I think, goes with the Insecure Men sound.”
The band, who recorded their album onto an ancient Tascam at Sean Lennon’s studio in upstate New York while Saul was working on the Moonlandingz album, took inspiration from the exotica of Arthur Lyman, the early electronic pop of Perrey and Kingsley, the songwriting chops of Harry Nilsson and the hypnagogic uncanniness conjured up by David Lynch it’s outwardly a charming exercise in timeless pop.
Finally, after a handful of appearances in and around South London, the band head out on a U.K headline tour in March, including a show at the Scala in London.
