A grimy, 1980s music video with a beautiful twist from Crowns & Owls

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Is it just us or are music videos getting more and more epic by the week? If ever there was a video to get you pumped up for a dancey, maybe even semi-violent weekend then this is it. Leeds-based Crowns & Owls have just released this absolute grimy gem of a music video featuring some of the best casting I have ever witnessed. You can just imagine the insane mood board for this video; a grim smoothie concoction including slices of Flashdance, Billy Elliott and Teenwolf. Chuck in an excellent song by Toby Gale and you’ve got one heck of a music video.
