Given it’s exclusive first airing on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 Show last night as “Hottest Record In The World”, ‘The Paddington Frisk’ earned an unprecedented 4 plays in a row from the DJ!
The video went live instantly after the first play and caused a storm amongst Shikari fans and bemused Japanese people alike…
Filmed in London under the direction of Love Vis-Art, the video tells the touching story of a girl, her noose, and her anthropomorphic crocodile.
‘The Paddington Frisk’ is the first release of 100% newly recorded material since the January 2012 release of the album ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’.
‘The Paddington Frisk’ was co-produced by the band and Dan Weller, and recorded in Lincolnshire in February of this year.
Enter Shikari’s special tour of (largely) lesser-visited UK & Irish towns and cities commenced last night at the Dorking Halls (in Dorking, would you believe) and continues through April into early May.
The band kick of a busy European festival season in June with their biggest UK festival billing to date, headlining the second stage on Saturday at Download Festival 2013.
