GINGER WILDHEART UNVEILS POWERFUL NEW VIDEO!
GINGER WILDHEART has issued a striking, thought-provoking short film for a track from his brand new album Year Of The Fanclub due next week.
The powerful nine-minute film directed by Mark Haldor accompanies the song ‘Don’t Lose Your Tail, Girl’, which Wildheart describes as a feminist song written by a man.
“I was brought up by strong women and had little positive male influence in my life in comparison,” he explains. “I think this gives me an unbiased view on the opposite sex, by which I mean it’s unaffected by the stereotypes supported in magazines aimed at both men and women. In the end it’s a song about appreciating yourself, giving yourself a break, which seems harder for women in society.
“I wanted Mark to film the movie as I know he has earned strong bonds with the actresses he works with. He also has an eye for beauty beyond heavy make-up and posing, which is what a nine-minute film really needs. Nine minutes of contorting females would be torturous to watch. He has captured personality and joy, as well as a darker side that is quite disturbing.
“I think the film is a work of art, occasionally uncomfortable to watch, but with a lasting feeling of freedom. It’s a song about not losing your identity, and the film captures that in the natural beauty of the performances.”
According to Haldor, the director wanted to “create a visual stimulus that would not only do the lyrics and eclectic sounds justice, but provoke a look at women, of all ages, races and backgrounds and what they go through in life, both positive and negative.
