Stooshe – Lock Down (Video Premiere)
English girl group Stooshe make an explosive return with their brand new single “Lock Down“ and its accompanying video.
After a string of top 10 hits, a top 10 album with 2013’s “London with the Lights On“, BRIT and MOBO Award nominations – Karis Anderson, Alexandra Buggs, and Courtney Rumbold make their comeback.
“Lock Down” is a sassy, confident club banger with throwback elements chucked in the mix combining their earlier work with a fresh overhaul (think “Bang, Bang”). Nathaniel “Detonate” Ledwidge helms the brash, rattling production and the girls provide a self-assured delivery. Stooshe previously stated that “Lock Down” “represents freedom and choice, a snapshot of the journey that we have been on so far, but it still stays true to us with our Motown theme running throughout”.
The accompanying video was directed and produced by Damien Sandoval and includes a cameo from America’s Next Top Model and Guess model Dom Benjamin. Filming took place in Los Angeles and at HM Prison Kingston in Portsmouth and showcases the trio breaking free from prison and going on the run with a snippet of a more urban-tinged track on the outro.
“Lock Down” is confirmed as the first taste of Stooshe’s sophomore album due out in 2016, and the new single is scheduled to be released on January 15th via Trilogy Records. Watch the video below
