Three imaginative boyos, TRAMPOLENE, release a new single ‘Shoot The Lights,’ today, Thursday 24th June. ‘Shoot The Lights’ was produced by Mike Moore (Baxter Dury/Liam Gallagher).
Jack Jones on ‘Shoot The Lights’ “ for me it’s about when you’re scared and trapped indoors together with someone you love, for what feels like forever, it’s touch you need, life you want, and shoot the lights when you dare.”
The video for ‘Shoot The Lights’ was directed by Roger Sargent (Sleaford Mods/The Libertines/Fat White Family) and filmed on a psychedelic trip around London and Roger’s front room. Roger explains the idea behind the video“ it’s about coming out of lockdown, with all the bright lights being tantalisingly close, both figuratively and literally and the toll it’s taken on everyone’s mental health”.
