Blood Red Shoes, In Time To Voices
Blood Red Shoes guitarist and vocalist Laura-Mary Carter arm wrestles one of the UK’s most successful body builders in their new video for "In Time To Voices," their brand new single released today, Monday, August 27th via V2/Co-Operative Music. Watch the video below!
The Beauty and the Beast style arm-wrestling match held in a seedy backroom bar sees Laura-Mary take on muscle man Craig Lee who sits firm at number 11 in the rankings of the most successful body builders in the UK.
Shot like a film by director Craig Murray, with practical effects by Sunita Parmer (Hobbit, Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and additional foley work from Adam Mendez (Slumdog Millionaire, Judge Dread, 127 Hours), Laura-Mary fights her way out of a male dominated situation whilst drummer Steven Ansell cleans up the bets once his singer does the dirty work with a swift (and sore looking) high heel move.
Speaking on how this came to fruition, Ansell says: “We got in touch with an old friend of ours, Craig Murray, who we've known for years from the punk scene but never worked with before…. his first video for us is our favourite one to date! No surprise really as punk rockers always do it better.”
‘In Time To Voices’ is the third single and title track to be released from Blood Red Shoes’critically-acclaimed album that was released earlier this year. This rocking, upbeat track was written by Laura-Mary whilst Steven “popped out to the shops to buy more wine” and is the only Blood Red Shoes track to ever have a guitar solo.
