Gun release edgy NSFW video for new single Take Me Down

Gun have released a new video for their track Take Me Down.

The song originally featured on the band’s album Favourite Pleasures, which launched last year.

The video was directed by Keir Siewert and stars Chloe Rank-Harrington and Adam Gillian, with the band’s Dante Gizzi explaining why they decided to tell a hard-hitting story in the promo rather than take a more traditional approach.

He says: “We took the conscious decision to stray from the conventional rock video with live band performance. We wanted a new challenge with a strong, edgy storyline which I’m sure will grasp the viewers’ attention from the off. 

“The video has a Film Noir feel to it, inspired with a blend of True Romance meets Bonnie & Clyde. It’s about the ultimate betrayal of a couple who commit a burglary which goes horribly wrong.

“We wanted to put a twist in it, in regards to how far they would go for money even if it meant destroying their relationship.”

Gun have several UK dates planned this year and will take to the stage at Glasgow’s TRNSMT festival next weekend.
