UK country duo The Shires are back and headed for big things with their latest, super-catchy single.
Biggest-selling UK country act of all time, The Shires, have unveiled the new video to their latest single Guilty, off of the duo’s new album Accidentally On Purpose, which is set for release on 20 April via Decca Records. A big splash of color and a playful narrative make the perfect visual for their new track.
“From the moment we read the initial concept, we knew this video was going to be a lot of fun to shoot. We got to act a little more in this video – I even got handcuffed but the police. The location for the shoot was really cool, it was set at The Pink Motel in LA which has an 80’s vibe to it, with the bold, bright colours and a slight nod to ‘Stranger Things’ which we love!” says vocalist Crissie Rhodes.
Filmed on location in LA, the video sees Ben and Crissie playing petty criminals carrying out crimes in a laundrette, an American diner and eventually driving off in a police car, Bonnie and Clyde style.
