The Shoes – Time to Dance

1 Dec 2012

A rather intriguing and violent short film music video starring renowned actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Combine the best band in France right now, acclaimed director Daniel Wolfe, production by Somesuch & Co, and one of the hottest young actors on the planet and you are sure to get a banging and gruesome filmclip.

The Shoes revealed a rather intriguing 9 minute short film music video in promotion of the “Time to Dance” EP, starring renowned actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal’s character embarks on a rather disturbing hipster-murderer rampage, killing a number of individuals along the way. Actually, it’s a drug infused montage of Gyllenhaal working out, chilling all nude and hot in a sauna, going through London’s clubs and parties murdering people for no reason whatsoever. The clip rounds out as the award winning star seems to finally get in touch with the music with his moderate movements and slightly awkward head-boggling. The fuzzy and thought-provoking background electro-pop music makes you want to tap your feet while the imagery makes you want run as far away as humanly possible.

French ’80s synth pop-inspired duo the Shoes later stepped out from behind the mixing desk to embark on their own successful career. Childhood friends Guillaume Brière and Benjamin Lebeau started out in various school bands before finding brief fame in short-lived outfit the Film, whose track “Can You Touch Me” was chosen as the soundtrack for a car advert. In 2011, they released their debut album, Crack My Bones, whose second single, “Time to Dance”.
