Slow Knight's debut music video, 'Shame', launches exclusively on SHOWstudio!

Known by many as the lead guitarist in legendary glam-pop band Scissor Sisters, musician Del Marquis has branched out with the exciting collaborative collective Slow Knights

SHOWstudio exclusively launches the band's first music video Shame, taken from their debut album Cosmos. With its catchy eighties beat and dark, glitchy artwork, Shame examines the concept of euphoria in submission - the pleasure one gets from being used and rejected. Del Marquis explains, 'rather than seeing shame as a negative experience, the song is about embracing unequal terms that are the basis for human relations.'

The video's visuals embrace a similar dark notion of shame. Edward Quist, director of the music video, chose to explore the depth of the song, focusing on the word shame as an abstract concept. 'Shame is not a natural instinct or feeling,' he explains. 'There is no specificity in the title character’s shame, instead he is trapped in a cyclical digital prison of fear.'
