Currently over in the states for a host of shows at SXSW, DZ Deathrays have today revealed the video for new single ‘Gina Works at Hearts’, the 2nd single to be taken from their forthcoming sophomore LP, ‘Black Rat’.
Seductive, tragic and addictive; the video was shot at Melbourne venue Platform One and sees the arrival of ‘Gina’ with a depiction given to her by director, Noel Smyth, that shows there could be a nasty twist in the tale.
Striking a pose halfway between ‘40s burlesque and a neon-tinted strip club nightmare, we’re first introduced to Gina as a talented and beautiful singer, backed by a small jazz band made up of DZ’s Simon and Shane. However all is not as it seems, as the video follows the track’s titular protagonist and slowly reveals the true sad reality of her life.
With more details of “Black Rat’s” UK release to come, ‘Gina Works at Hearts’ is available to download now through Australian label ‘I OH YOU’. The incredible video can be seen above.
