We shot the video for the song “Somebody Killed the DJ” while riding scooters around Rome, Italy. I attended language school and took classes for six hours a day. One of my mates from school Stefan from Germany and I would ride around and film ourselves doing goofy stuff after class. The nights were mad revelries of drink and song in local bars, restaurants, and the occasional hotel room. Our only responsibility was to show up for class the next day. The video reflects those reckless months well without revealing anything too incriminating. This music video certainly has nothing to do with the idea behind the song itself. But rather was moreÂ a mere way to give it an image of some sort, to splatter paint upon it. ForÂ informationÂ about the song, refer to the music or songs section. The song’s message is actually quite powerful on its own. The video should be seen as a separate work from the song and its message.
