WATCH: Calva Louise reveal new video ahead of Manchester YES gig

Calva Louise have revealed the new video for Belicoso ahead of a run of dates including a Manchester gig at YES.

Belicoso has been directed by friend and videographer Bart Jones and features the band subject to a scatter-gun series of maniacal experiments at the hands of a series of terrifying children.

Inspired by the literal Spanish definition of ‘Belicoso’ (or “lairy” in English), Jess Allanic explains the train of thought that led to the new video’s creation: “The idea of the video came from the experiences that some people might undergo in their daily lives. We were thinking that diminishing the rudeness of living a mundane life could create a somewhat comedic experience… Then it occurred to us to interpret a scientific adventure, where the characters reach ridiculous extremes looking for a result: the anger that makes us “lairy” (produced by an inverse situation to what is usual, where the children victimise the adults instead) creates energy, that when generated, produces a kind of power through laughter. It is as if the children give the adults a spoonful of their own medicine!”

Belicoso will feature on Calva Louise’s new EP Interlude for the Borderline Unsettled which will  be released via Ditto Music this Autumn.

The Manchester based trio will perform a brief run of dates opening with a Manchester gig at YES at the beginning of December.
