Blackjazz trail-blazers Shining have revealed a brand new video for ‘House Of Control’, a track from their current studio album, ‘International Blackjazz Society’, released late last year through Spinefarm Records.
“It’s so great to finally have a video for our song ‘House Of Control’, since it means so much to me,” explains Shining frontman Jørgen Munkeby. “Not only are the lyrics very personal, but musically the track was also a bold step into a more varied and melodic landscape. We had no idea how that new direction would work out, but it has ended up being my favourite track off the album. I had so much fun shooting the video, and I’m very happy to present this steaming hot new clip!”
