NOTHANKYOU UNVEIL NEW VIDEO FOR ‘OYSTER’ DIRECTED BY OLGA BELL
Nothankyou, Olga Bell and Tom Vek’s exciting transatlantic collaborative project, share the new video, directed by Olga, for their splendid track ‘Oyster’.
The 7” ‘Know Yourself’/’Oyster’ single, is out now via Moshi Moshi.
On her directorial debut Olga explains: “Something about our transatlantic distance required a Cindy Sherman-esque manifestation of Tom via my own person. I also looked at lots of Avedon portraits (he’s my favorite, especially “In the American West”), along with 90s Calvin Klein ads and the morphing sequence at the end of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video.”
“Lots of people on hearing Oyster think that it’s Tom singing the lower parts, but it’s actually my voice pitched down. So, it sort of follows that I appear “as Tom” in the video during the moments in the song where “he sings”.
