John Grant has unveiled a funky new video for his single “Voodoo Doll.” the track is off his latest release, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. Directed by The Diamond Brothers, an identical twin directing team known for the Danko Jones Trilogy & Melt Yourself Down, the video sees John tending to a woolen doll in the hope of revitalizing his depressed friend before transforming into a Voodoo doctor and indulging his latent love of make-up.
Of the video the Diamond Brothers say: “We’ve been long time fans of John Grant since Queen of Denmark and leapt at the chance to collaborate on a music video for him. The rich visual imagery in his lyrics gave us so much to work with to create a lush world for his music to inhabit.”
“Voodoo Doll” will also soon be released with remixes of the track. Moshi Moshi recording artist Anna Meredith delivers the most idiosyncratic and individual take while Black Devil Disco ramp up the funk and keep the track firmly on the dance floor. Wrangler bring a more techy, “Voodoo Ray”-style element while Satellites groove things up with rhythmic guitars, and slap bass. Lastly, Welsh electro-pop Goddess Gwenno delivers a spacey, synth-heavy remix alongside partner-in-crime Peski Kid.
