Soft Play 'Act Violently' by Thomas Davis

Rob Ulitski - 23rd May 2024

Soft Play's Isaac Holman laments e-scooter culture - personified by bandmate Laurie Vincent - in the duo's latest entertaining collab with Thomas Davis. 

As Isaac suffers from the thoughtless behaviour of Laurie's scooter-hooligan, the video for Act Violently develops into a rousing call to arms to the virtues of wreaking revenge - with that comedic, offbeat twist that has become the hallmark of Davis's videos for the band. 

Imbued with dark comedy and a delightfully British passive-aggressive vibe - the video was filmed in that bastion of middle-class stuffiness that is Tunbridge Wells - it's a punchy visual elevated by fun cinematography and impassioned performance.

Another splendid visual from Davis, his third after the videos for Punk's Dead and Mirror Muscles, since the name-change of the band formerly known as Slaves.
