The Shires release video for new single Guilty

UK Country duo The Shires have released the video for their new single Guilty.

The music video was filmed in Los Angeles and it sees Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes playing petty criminals. Over the course of the clip the duo are seen committing crimes in a laundrette and an American diner before paying homage to Bonnie and Clyde by driving off in a police car.

Talking about the video Crissie says, “From the moment we read the initial concept, we knew this video was going to be a lot of fun to shoot. We got to act a little more in this video – I even got handcuffed but the police. The location for the shoot was really cool, it was set at The Pink Motel in LA which has an 80’s vibe to it, with the bold, bright colours and a slight nod to ‘Stranger Things’ which we love!”

Guilty, out now, is the first single taken from The Shires’ forthcoming third album Accidentally on Purpose, which will be released on 20th April 2018.

“This song encapsulates our writing trip to Nashville back in October. Nashville really is a party town and there were parties almost every night, it was hard to turn down the invites. We were certainly Guilty of having a good time out there!! As soon as we received the demo back from our co-writer & producer Lindsay, Crissie played it as her warm up track while she got ready to go out! It always got her in the mood for a night of partying,” reveals Ben.
