It’s your classic ‘guy gets kidnapped while playing a board game and thrown into a cage to see his favorite band’ kind of story,” laughs GLITTER WIZARD bassist KANDI MOON about their new video for “She’s A Star.” Inspired by ’70s and ’80s grindhouse horror films, comic books, video games and fantasy board games (In this case the classic Dungeon Degenerates), the video releases today alongside their brand new glam flavored EP Kiss The Boot via Kitten Robot Records. (On DSPs here).
Recalling classic metal videos of yore that feature caged fans, blood rituals and big hair… lots and lots of hair, “She’s a Star” looks and feels like a lost Giallo film a la Lamberto Bava/Dario Argento’s heavy metal slasher Demons, complete with a haze filled dungeon, high contrast stylized lighting and blood seeping right through the screen. “Filming the video was great, we had an excellent production crew and group of actors who really killed it, literally,” continues Moon. “Because creating art in the Bay Area has become increasingly difficult in the past few years with the escalating cost of living, a lot of creatives have moved away and the ones left are trying to work as much as possible to stay afloat.
This project felt like old SF with a bunch of creative people all working toward making something rad and contributing what they could to make it happen. We crammed a lot of shots into two days of filming and then finished it off with a nice bloodbath. You can’t really ask for anything more.”
