The Fratellis drop video for new single “Stand Up Tragedy”

Geriatric dance party anyone? Watch your grandma get down in The Fratellis‘ music video for their new single “Stand Up Tragedy”. The song is the first single off the band’s upcoming album In Your Own Sweet Time.

According to lead vocalist Jon Fratelli, the music video for the track needed to have one single message: “We needed something that captured the spirit of the song, that didn’t take itself too seriously and had one simple suggestion…‘Dance God Damn You’!!

Luckily, Alexander Darby was up to the task. “I thought the track had a manic, really fun energy to it which would work perfectly with a very unlikely, irreverent love story so I wanted to make it all about old people and one fiery couple,” said Darby. “The shoot was extremely fun, everyone’s inner disco came out when we switched the lights on and starting giving 70-somethings feather boas and sunglasses!”
