Luke Bather - 11th May 2017

Sam Bailey has a few body shocks in this gross and opulent duel between lovers for Marika Hackman.

Ah, the life of the disgustingly rich - waltz down the massive staircase with your lover before absolutely destroying them in a fencing match, cutting a hole into their belly that becomes a mouth. How the other half live, eh? Bailey, who is a member of the band Francobollo - who just so happen to be touring with Hackman, has a lot of fun here playing around in the world of the wealthy before taking a few twists and turns into some hilarious gross-out VFX territory. 
 

Sam Bailey:

“I love how grubby Marika’s lyrics are from a story point of view. Rarely do we hear an account of love and lust from the one who wants the cake and to eat it. So I wanted to play with this ‘cakey eaty’ attitude between two people drawn together in a battle of status. I’ve also always loved the idea of the upper-classes up to no good so it was a lot of fun to run amok around a stately home.”
