London alt-pop darlings Jockstrap have announced a fully reworked version of their critically acclaimed 2018 debut mini-album – Love Is the Key to the City, the first single from which, “I Want Another Affair”, we can share exclusively now.
The mini-album has been afforded a beautifully disorientating twist by the band’s principal songwriters 20 year-olds Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye. Ellery explained, “Whilst Taylor made the tracks, I made the music videos. I did each in a day, with the equipment I had, and I dragged in friends that were available and up for some silliness. I had to match Taylor’s creativeness with the visuals.” Skye adds, “The idea behind these remixes was to make versions of the songs that were ridiculous, instinctive and banging. It was the complete opposite process to the way me and Georgia made the original tracks. It was also done completely home-grown style – the tunes were produced, mixed and mastered on my tiny speakers in my room.”
Ellery describes the idea behind the “I Want Another Affair” video: “My favourite. ‘Blurred Lines’ meets night out in Dalston Superstore. Me and Alex [the boy in the video] love the Negroni they serve in Superstore. My other house mate Ollie Marshall filmed the video and I edited it. We shot it in a pilates studio wearing selected Alex Mullins SS19. The budget for the video was only £14 (taxi there and back), plus the mirror we broke… Right now I’m well into emojis, and really good pop videos (“7 Rings”). I guess we were trying to emulate a good pop video.”
