Following on from last month’s successful European tour, The Virginmarys have released ‘S.O.S.4.U.N.I.’, the second video from their critically acclaimed album ‘Northern Sun Sessions’.
Vocalist/guitarist Ally Dickaty and drummer Danny Dolan explain the concept behind the video: “We decided we wanted something completely off the wall, very odd and crazy in comparison to our previous videos, so we channelled James Bond 007 voodoo imagery from the film ‘Live And Let Die’ and mashed it up with Rob Zombie Hammer Horroresque pictures.
“The initial idea was that we were to appear as apparitions in a kind of Star Wars hologram look which would be accompanied by satanic rituals including goats, pentagrams, actors dressed as the pope and a giant sized Lamb-man (think full on original 1973 film ‘The Wicker Man’)”
“Instead we replaced all those elements with a fire-breathing, sword wielding dancer named Lauren, which when combined with rock music, what’s not to like?!”
