The Little Kicks share remarkable motion-capture video for new single ‘You & Someone Like Me’


By Kieran Webber

The Little Kicks first emerged around five years ago, a young Aberdeen band with the wind in their sails. A crisp, upbeat debut album followed, laced with off kilter indie pop worth comparing to early Franz Ferdinand, The Long Blondes, or even Sparks.

After some time off and a re-jig of personnel they return with new track ‘You & Someone Like Me’ a defining pop belter that is carried by a groovy bassline. The accompanying visuals recreates the band as skeletons and took over 100 hours to create, Lead singer Steve Milne commented; “The video came from a day of very much unplanned green screen experimentation which was a lot of fun. The only requirement of us was to “perform” and to look lively which we did our best at. However, with the addition of some freestyling from my sister (a trained dancer) and 100 hours of editing work by the video company we now have what we consider to be a pretty unique video that compliments the song perfectly!”
