New Music Of The Day: Spring King – Who Are You? (Video Premiere)

The UK’s most hyped guitar band of 2015 Spring King are our New Artist Of The Week this week, and today we’re premiering their new video for stellar single ‘Who Are You?’.

Directed by Tim Keeling, I’ll keep the guffawing to a minimum and simply say this: it’ll appeal to anybody who has a love for either Back To The Future or glistening front doors.


Here’s what Tim the director had to say about it:

“The door idea sprouted the first time I saw Spring King play, I just kept seeing doors flying off the front of houses on a thrill-seeking mission. When I heard ‘Who Are You?’ for the first time, the irreverence of a joyriding door kept coming back until that’s what it had to be.”
