Blood Red Shoes 'Speech Coma' by Brian & Karl
Centred on a spirited and brilliant performance from London drag queen Meth, Brian & Karl deliver this hard-hitting promo for Blood Red Shoes' Speech Coma.
Shot in black and white and drenched in atmosphere, we see Meth dripping and spewing blood as she performs - which looks a deep, menacing black in monochrome - lip-syncing her way through the lyric, all beautifully and dramatically captured by DP Nathan Mackintosh.
BRIAN & KARL
"We wanted to create something really visceral and dark for Speech Coma. Initially we were drawn to the idea of the drag queen as a kind of mute performer, a figure that could really embody the themes of the song in an unexpected way.
"Inspired by the body horror genre, we loved the idea of interpreting the lyrics literally, creating a Kafkaesque and nightmarish world in which this beautiful performer is subject to an inexplicable and brutal destruction.
"We were lucky enough to get one of London’s boldest and most talented drag queens on board, Meth. She really brought a lot to the project and we think it’s a completely mesmerising performance.”
