FRESH: ‘Glorious’ – RINNGS

Alt-pop duo RINNGS have released their music video for the track “Glorious”

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 1’s Chillest Show and enjoyed spot plays on BBC 6 Music.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
