VIDEO : King Krule - "Biscuit Town"





(photo by Charlotte Pattmore)

Today King Krule releases a music video for "Biscuit Town," the opening track from his Mercury Prize nominated album 'The OOZ'. The video comes as the first of a three-part collaboration with WeTransfer, which sees King Krule explore the creative process with each video’s director, hosted on their WePresent platform. Directed by friends and long-term collaborators cc. Wade (aka Michael and Paraic Morrissey), the video sees King Krule (aka Archy Marshall) inhabiting his own noir "Biscuit Town” — waking up and retracing his footsteps through the city, piecing together the remnants of a hazy, half-remembered night before. A reflection of his futuristic, jazz-inflected, film-inspired sound, the video serves to compliment the warm, dreamlike quality of "Biscuit Town."
