The Darkness Unveil Video for ‘With a Woman’
The Darkness have unleashed a music video for their tune âWith a Woman,’ which marks the fourth single from the bandâs 2012 disc âHot Cakes.â The clip delivers âEpisode 1â of what will likely take music fans on a trip down memory lane to a time when the hair was big and the videos were larger than life.
As noted by Stereogum when the site premiered the video recently, the start of the retro clip is very reminiscent of an old Van Halen video, giving a nod to the classic âHot for Teacherâ scene. That is of course until a bear crashes the set, hopping onto the smoke filled stage with the Darkness and interrupting a bevy of gratuitous guitar solos and mid-air splits.
This isnât the first time weâve seen the bikini clad bear in a Darkness video though. Sheâs first introduced in their video for âEverybody Have a Good Timeâ where she crashes a business meeting and does a strip tease in the middle of a conference room. Coincidentally, that video is dubbed ‘Episode 2′ for those keeping track, so the Darkness are taking us through the storyline backwards – how apropos!
The Darkness continue to prove time and time again to expect nothing but the unexpected from them. Itâs clear that these guys are enjoying themselves through both their music and their videos so it’s hard not to feel the same way when watching. Check out their latest offering below.
