Daphne Guinness – Old School | Music Video



“Old School” is the latest track to be lifted from Daphne Guinness‘ critically acclaimed debut album, Optimist In Black. She is sharing a video for it from the aforementioned Tony Visconti-produced album, the latter of whom a collaborator with the late David Bowie.


“Old School” is a dirty rocker, a throwback with a punky and grungy spirit to it. The vocals, despairing and drawling, seem to evoke those two rather subversive genres in particular. The closing parts have a vocal refrain, and also a subsequent one to let the drums breathe.


The video was shot on a single Super 8 camera, perhaps going someway to achieving that grainy, retrospective feel. Symmetry also creates quite a trippy effect, and crumpled foil on walls offering a shiny and glinting backdrop.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
