After unveiling their new song ‘Elizabeth’ last week, Kill Your Boyfriend have released a subversive official video for the track which compliments it so perfectly its hard to imagine they were never meant to be.
The video, directed by Blau!, follows a woman’s gradual descent into a world of madness and hallucinations, represented by the band’s sinister incursions. The morbid obsession of the character with her loved one intensifies throughout their relationship, until the tragic ending, in a mix of ironic absurdity and a taste for the Italian horror classics of Argento, Bava and Avati.
The single was released on Depths Records and the B-side features a remix by Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong) guitarist Daniel Christiansen.
The band, who formed in Venice, Italy in 2011, is an artistic collaboration between singer-guitarist Matteo Scarpa, standing somewhere in between a doomsday teller and a possessed Rockabilly shouter, and drummer Antonio Angeli, who perfectly sets the frantic and tachycardic pace for the Noir and Post-industrial tales of his partner in crime.
