TUNE Big Time Quell - Midnight Jaguar
Shetland rock/pop/jazz/reggae/folk/80s synth outfit Big Time Quell have released their latest music video - a kaleidoscopic, green-screen affair for their new single Midnight Jaguar.
The track, which is being released digitally soon, takes you by the hand on a journey through wacky lyrics, rocked-up riffs and a smattering of sultry saxophone.
