The biggest-selling UK Country act of all time, The Shires, unveil their brand new video to their single ‘Guilty’. A riot of colour and with a playful narrative, this is the perfect visual for their new single which has already been described as a “Toe-taping sing-a-long hit”.
Filmed on location in LA, the video sees Ben and Crissie playing petty criminals carrying out crimes in a laundrette, an American diner and eventually driving off in a police car, Bonnie and Clyde style.
“From the moment we read the initial concept, we knew this video was going to be a lot of fun to shoot. We got to act a little more in this video – I even got handcuffed but the police. The location for the shoot was really cool, it was set at The Pink Motel in LA which has an 80’s vibe to it, with the bold, bright colours and a slight nod to ‘Stranger Things’ which we love!” – Crissie Rhodes, The Shires
The new single ‘Guilty’ was released last Friday, March 9th 2018 and is the first track taken from their highly anticipated third album ‘Accidentally on Purpose’, due for release on 20thApril 2018 through Decca Records.
The infectious country/pop track ‘Guilty’ was written by the band during their trip to America last year and had it’s World Exclusive 1st playon Radio 2last week.
“This song encapsulates our writing trip to Nashville back in October. Nashville really is a party town and there were parties almost every night, it was hard to turn down the invites. We were certainly Guilty of having a good time out there!! As soon as we received the demo back from our co-writer & producer Lindsay, Crissie played it as her warm up track while she got ready to go out! It always got her in the mood for a night of partying” – Ben Earle, The Shires
The band shared a teaser of the video last week on their social sites and eagle-eyed fans spotted that instead of food appearing on the menus, it was in fact a list of the tracks from their new album ‘Accidentially on Purpose’.
