Clipping’s “Shooter,” a standout from Wriggle, the group’s summer EP, now has an official video, directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada.
Clipping’s William Hutson says of the visual and song, “Since the beginning of the band, we had discussed making a dance video for one of our songs but didn’t think we could actually pull it off. When Voltaire Wade-Green offered to choreograph something for us, we jumped at the chance to work with him and the other dancers (all of whom were Hamilton ensemble members at the time). He and Carlos conceived the video together based on the scenarios of gun violence depicted in the song’s lyrics, and managed to match the cheery tone of the song to the seriousness of its themes.”
Clipping has added European dates to its 2016 tour schedule in support of Wriggle, and Splendor & Misery, their Sci-Fi/Dystopian concept record released last month. The new dates begin December 9th in Brussels at M4 and end December 20th in London at Corsica Studios. The tour will include stops in Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, and more. Clipping is currently in the midst of an east coast co-headline a tour with Youth Code (through November 4th).
