Alt-pop duo RINNGS have released their music video for the track “Glorious”
by Christopher Smith
London based alt-pop duo RINNGS (Karl Zine and Nai Jannson) have released the beautiful, intoxicating dance video for “Glorious”, the lead single from their debut EP, released in July 2018.
The video was shot on location in central London at Five Miles club in Tottenham and directed by band member Karl Zine. Speaking about the video Karl said “The song is really about chasing those highs, where you forget about the real world for a minute and are living in the moment, and the video needed to reflect that. We also wanted to capture the feeling of finding someone unexpected that you have an intense connection with.
We shot the video at dawn to make use of the empty city and to ensure that the focus was solely on the two characters, mirroring the way someone can temporarily become your whole world. Although parts of the video are choreographed, most of it was improvised so that we could capture a spontaneity in the movements of the dancers. Many of the shots in the video overlap slightly or morph subtly in to each other, giving the feeling that you might be watching the memory of a moment, rather than watching something happen in real-time.”
RINNGS have become renowned for carving out their own particular brand of electronic music, delivered solely via a unique combination of silky vocals and percussion No other instruments are used. The Band released debut EP “Glorious” on July 20th 2018 through independent record label Wow & Flutter. Tracks from the EP were supported by Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1s Chillest Show and enjoyed spot plays on BBC 6 Music.
