DANCE, YOU’RE ON FIRE recently released the music video for their latest single, MICHELLE. Directed by band member and bassist, Paul van der Walt – the video was shot in mid August in Pretoria North.
The video is set in the 1920s and follows a ‘gangster’ theme. It documents a happy young couple being driven through the country when they are tricked and hijacked by a band of armed thieves. The couple are brought to an unused barn, where some interesting activities go down. The video plays out in true mafia fashion until the end, when something completely unexpected occurs.
DANCE, YOU’RE ON FIRE always knew that they wanted to release MICHELLE, but they weren’t sure of how it would be received because it is so different from every other song on the album. When it became clear to them that the track was doing well on radio and that people were enjoying it, they decided to go ahead with the video for the single.
MICHELLE will premiere on MK Channel 324 on DSTV on Kraakvars tonight at 20h00 and the band will be performing live on Studio 1 on MK on Friday the 23rd of September; at Clash of Cultures in Midrand on Saturday the 24th of September and at Aardklop on Saturday the 8th of October.
