London four piece Storms release the video for their new single “Girl”. Warning, restraining order imminent.
Storms are back with a new single, “Girl”. Vocalising the frustrating contradictions of a love/hate relationship, “Girl” fronts an upbeat melody layered with a heartfelt croon, made raw by a scuzzy 90s’s grunge undertone. The video, both endearing and funny, will appeal to anyone who’s felt for someone out of reach.
It’s a tried and tested formula. Reminiscent of the video for Paris Hilton’s track “Nothing In This World”, circa 2006, it could well be a hipster remake of the Hilton shrine. A nerdy, but loveable, lead who pines for the girl of his dreams? Check. Posters of said girl on his bedroom wall? Check. Various daydreams with his fantasy gal? Check. His obsession is extreme – he even climbs a tree to perv on her undressing. But who could blame him? His tactics, perhaps worthy of a restraining order, pay off and he gets the girl. The moral of the story is that God loves a trier, even if it’s a tad creepy. Paris Hilton’s classic has been grabbed by the jugular and dragged through East London – and it’s better for it.
The band are feeling generous. Check out their website for a free download of the track here.
