With their debut EP ‘5 Songs’ landing on 3rd July via Alcopop! Records, Brighton’s DITZ are revealing the video for their latest single ‘Role Model’.
Commenting on the video, the band say, “The birth of this track and everything associated with it has been an experiment for us. We recorded it in Leeds, away from our usual studio and producer in Brighton. The video was made by our usual collaborator Jay Bartlett during lockdown. We took a hands off approach and gave him very few cues. It gave us an opportunity to react the same way a fan might on first viewing. In giving him that freedom I feel like we gained some freedom of our own.”
On the message of the song, vocalist Cal adds, “‘Role Model’ is about peer envy, which I think is something that most artists suffer from. It’s a horrible trait that stops you from being happy for other people and leaves you with a skewed perspective of what you’re making and its original goals. Sitting back from what you’ve made is the only way to see it the way you’ve intended.”
