Jimmy Brown - 23rd July 2010

Like a classic Roxy Music album sleeve coming to life, Ferry Gouw captures the lounge lizard in all his stylish glory on new single You Can Dance, with Ferry (Bryan, that is) in his element surrounded by beautiful women.

"Bryan wanted to portray the video as a band performance in perhaps the seediest most glamorous and exclusive underground club where beautiful people are all high on life," explains Ferry (Gouw).

"We always loved the idea of using Wilton's Music Hall as a location. It was just about pinpointing the kind of atmosphere we wanted, and it seems like we came to a common ground on, of all things, Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. I think the smoke, and dirt, mixed in well with the gold and glamour and the dark undertones of the track. The slow motion confetti is also a nice little nod to Roxy's Manifesto"
