Toro y Moi’s Low Shoulder Video Premier

This is my friend Chaz aka Toro y Moi’s new video for the song “Low Shoulder.” I think it is great…naturally. Apparently it has Ben Sherman’s wife in it, so that is really neat. Prepare to be freaked out! Toro y Moi is on Carpark Records. You can pick up the album on iTunes.

For the video to Toro Y Moi’s latest single “Low Shoulder” the directors Elisha Smith-Leverock and Chris Murdoch have drawn inspiration from everything from pulp magazines and Cinderella to sploshing and mono-brows. It’s a nod to Italo-horror flics form the 70s and 80s. It features an appearance by 60s it-girl Daphne Sherman, wife of the legendary mod tailor Ben Sherman, who stars as a demented ballroom dancing reject/ waitress.

“According to Chaz the song was written for his girlfriend asking her to not fall asleep whilst driving. We based the video on the idea of this sleep-deprived girl calling at a roadside diner for a coffee. Next thing you know she’s semi-conscious and experiencing some really weird sh**”

Low Shoulder was shot in studio and on location at the Marina Cafe on Mare Street, Hackney on a very low budget with the help of a rather energetic and like-minded crew.
