The Amazons Unveil Video For Ultraviolet

Thursday, 07 September 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

The Amazons have shared a video for Ultraviolet.

The track features on their self-titled debut album, which was released this summer. The video, meanwhile, was shot on 16mm film and directed by Oscar Sansom, who said:

“I wanted to create a video that really celebrates the energy of The Amazons’ live performance, a visceral and explosive piece that would tear through the very film it was shot on. I wanted to make a blistering performance video that grabbed you by the scruff of the neck and looked you dead in the eye.

The band has this amazing effortless rock’n roll attitude and sound and I wanted to reflect that through the techniques I used. Shot on 16mm to give it a beautiful filmic texture I then went about mutilating the final negative. Bleach, scratching, ink and fire were my weapons of choice, I did everything you are told not to do with a negative and there is something quite enjoyable about that punk style approach to making.”

The band will tour the UK next month and again in February. Tickets are on sale now.
