Track: Dexys – My Submission

Sandra Vijandi

Storied pop-rock band Dexys have shared the video for their stunning new single ‘My Submission’ – the fourth track to be taken from their eagerly anticipated new album ‘The Feminine Divine’ due out the 28th of July via 100% Records. Shot by Patrick King, the video sees lead singer Kevin Rowland submit himself to his lover. 

“In the previous track ‘Goddess Rules,’ during which she lays down the law, he agrees to her rules,” explains Kevin Rowland. 

“Now, in ‘My Submission,’ he attempts to convince her that he is ready to submit by declaring his undying love. He’s at his most vulnerable now, but he’s excited at where the relationship is heading.”

Patrick King continued, 

“After having a first listen to this beautiful song, with a few notes from Kevin on what he envisaged, I felt that vintage lenses with warmth and character would be the best fit for the video. I chose Cooke S2 ‘Speed Panchro’ prime lenses from the 1930’s and their 5:1 zoom from the 1970’s for the ultra-slow zoom-in shots – paired together wonderfully, like the stars of the show.”

A gorgeous cross between a pop song and a religious hymn such is the tracks beauty. A gentle rolling lullaby is picked out as Rowland stretches his vocal chords to give us a stunning almost haunting performance. Stripped of the usual Dexy glitz and glamour we are left with a baring of soul in a pure, honest and raw form. A track that shows why we still need the Dexys to create music.
