We Just Don't Care (ft Shingai)

by Alice May


SHY FX: “We Just Don't Care (ft Shingai)” - 3 mins 17s

SHY FX's new release is impossibly infectious; combining jungle with a 90s girl band vibe thanks to Shingai's velvety tones. And what a promo Craig Moore has put together for it. This isn't your average dance-themed clip: this delivers dizzying break dance spins and one-handed, er, handstands.

The energy, skill and post-apocalyptic style make it one to watch again and again. Dancers sport gas masks which suggest wonderfully dangerous wombles; paint their faces to become tribal warriors; dress in hats and dungarees like so many hillbillies.

But it's not a nihilistic mood at all. This is all about life, not warring factions - the choreography is a celebration of what our bodies can do, and the dancers make it look as effortless as it is euphoric.
