Kira Clavell on the video for “Dangerous Days”:
“When Sex With Strangers approached me about creating a video for their single “Dangerous Days”, they wanted something dark and they wanted dancing. Usually “dancing” in music videos is the the opposite of dark. To me ‘Dangerous Days’ is a love story. I felt if there was going to be dance in it, it was dance to convey a status, a heat, pleasure/pain. The movement is painting the picture. Relationships are complicated. I wanted the video to reflect that. The story and shots were very vivid in my head so I just worked on the framing, and body language to match. I let the song tell me what the video was going to be.”
