Tunbridge Wells based quintet Coronation Ball – Dominic Scott (guitar/lead vocal), Jessica Watson (keys/violin/vocals), Harry Pearce (bass/vocals), Jake Thomas (guitar) and Joe Lyon (drums/percussion) – unveil a rather bizarre and colourful video (directed by Lewis Cater) for their new super catchy single ‘I Feel Fine’, out on Monday 1st December.
The video was inspired by the credits of a James Bond movie and Dominic explains: “The inspiration for the video came back in March, we were playing a show and some girls in the audience started doing the Macarena, it was an incredibly surreal move but it stuck with me. Later when we started planning the video I listened to the song, I listened to the lyrics for the first time and saw these parallels.” He adds: “Macarena is a song about a girl who’s tired of her boyfriend and talking about leaving him just like I Feel Fine. So the video took a lot of cues from the Macarena video and the result is this incongruous, twisted mash-up of a track inspired by 1960s giants: Ben E King, The Beatles and Phil Spector with a video inspired by a gimmicky 1990s one-hit-wonder.”‘I Feel Fine’ is a fine 60s infused indie-pop number lifted from their debut EP ‘Electric Blue’, released on December 8th.
Coronation Ball are playing live next Thursday 4th December at the Lock Tavern (Young and Lost club) on stage at 8.45pm.
