London newcomers Calva Louise have unveiled the visuals for their latest single “I Heard A Cry” and announced plans for an extensive UK tour in March next year following the release of their debut album ‘Rhinoceros’ on February 1st.

Having developed a fierce live reputation within London’s flourishing punk scene, the chaotic garage rockers have since earned support slots alongside the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, Spring King and Anteros and just finished an extensive UK tour with label-mates The Blinders.

Discussing the new video, frontwoman Jess Allanic stated: “The video begins with a group of actors rehearsing the 3rd act of the play Rhinoceros by Ionesco and the heated discussion between the director and the protagonist triggers the transformation of humans into rhinoceros”.

Commenting further on the concept, director Georges Hauchard-Heutte revealed: “I wanted to create a story where the two worlds of imagination and reality collapse, in a way we’re not sure where the limits are. That’s why we mixed animation and live footage. The wonderful work of Marion in drawing the animation gave life to the rhinoceros. We wanted to share hope coated in sadness, as Ionesco’s play does, in order to respect this masterpiece author. The violence of the rhinos against the fragility of the gazelle was a beautiful way to do it”.
