Sydney-based pop-punk band SoSo has accompanied their latest single ‘(Shit) Love Story’ with a dramatic and frenzied video clip, shot and directed by Pete O’Dowd from Mega Media TV.
The majority of the music video was filmed in one shot at the band’s share house, also known as The Shit Shack.
While each set piece was precisely prepared, O’Dowd used slow-fast speed-up effects requiring the band to perform the track at both 1.5 times and 0.75 times the original speed.
Lead singer, Rhys de Burgh, explains the aim of the video is to perfectly encapsulate what it’s like to be a musician in 2020, but he wouldn’t have it any other way.
“[You’re] torn between wanting to nurture your creative passion and having to hold down a day job,” he says.
“That balancing act between real-world versus your true vision is tough, it’s seen me say goodbye to relationships (the same relationship ‘Shit Love Story’ is about), friendships, and opportunities elsewhere.”
SoSo first erupted into the Australian music scene in March of this year, when they released their debut single ‘The Henry Lawson Jive’ on Triple J Unearthed TOPS.
A self-proclaimed quintet, SoSo aims to release two more singles this year to their already booming fan base.
