Virgin Kids – Cracks In A Colour was written and inspired by Suspiria a 1977 Italian horror film directed by Dario Argento, which follows a young female dancer starting a class at a haunted ballet school. We asked Joseph to do a video for us having seen him perform and document the drag scene in London over the past couple years. “We really wanted a video that featured contemporary dance and thought that getting drag dancers involved would be a welcome change from the stereotypical “Macho lad rock” approach that you tend to see in the garage rock scene”

 Daniel Wilson,  film Maker.

“When I first heard Cracks in a colour, I immediately envisioned a race. The steady verses paced perfectly in-between full energy choruses. I loved it. I have a strong interest in documenting the East London drag scene so the idea to contrast drag and punk was almost instant. With so many gay bars closing, typically ‘straight’ spaces are being taken over by the thriving queer scene. With this in mind, I was attracted to the idea of mixing the 2 genres up. I went and saw Virgin Kids play last year and, as expected, the crowd was full of grungy skater kids smashing their hair back and forth whilst repetitively jumping up and down as if stuck on a trampoline. I closed my eyes and slowly started pivoting my wrists around as if pushing away thick air. I thought about the colourful nights, the eccentric looks and the passion for music that is endless amongst the drag scene.”

Following their self-titled EP new London-based garage-punk three-piece Virgin Kids are gearing up to release their debut LP Greasewheel on Burger Records/Fluffer Records in March 2016.
