Rising glam rock outfit Jonny Cola & The A Grades have offered fans a glimpse of what to expect from their new double A side entitled Straight To Video / Marlborough Road with a teasing video trailer. The clip for Straight To Video features a cast of sailors and call girls smoking and playing cards and it is more trippy than anything ever witnessed before by the human eye and will leave you wondering what on earth just have you just witnessed.
In what seems to be a surreal yet hard hitting video, the clip contains the sailor’s playing cards and smoking. The music fits beautifully underneath creating a perfect backdrop to the strange goings on. As the camera pans round to focus on the musical side of things honing in on the instruments of the band the camera work is blurry and out of focus , adding to the trippy vibe creating by the sheer audacity of this video.
The video is just one of two videos that the band are releasing as part of the latest promotional campaign for their two new single releases from label Scratchy Records Aprl the 3rd.
With the band currently working on the second album these two releases have given us a real peak into the unknown in what looks set to be a huge hit from the ever improving band.
