The new Four Dead Crows music video, ‘That’s What You Get’, is inspired by the real-life thrilling story of Bonnie & Clyde. Re-imagined and re-designed by writer-director Joshy Lee(from Amarok Films), in a fantastically dark story. The band and Amarok have collaborated before on award-winning music video ‘Destitute Blues’ where they won best music video at the LA Film Awards last year, along with 9 nominations worldwide.

Watch the new video below:

The story has a lot to offer, it’s clearly not a reenactment of the true story, but some details from the events do shine through, like the climax in the final third of the film where Bonnie and Clyde are ambushed by four police officers(played by the Four Dead Crows) and get what they deserve.
There were a handful of unanswered questions, but they were left is such a way that you as an audience member can work out the outcome. Joshy Lee’s directing style has definitely shone through, with ‘That’s What You Get’ & ‘Destitute Blues’ we can only wait for his next music video project.

Also, not only was the story intriguing and visually pleasing but some the character performances were outstanding! Having the indie horror icon Jon-Paul Gates helm the lead antagonist was a smart move, from the first moment he walks into the frame to the cliffhanging last, you will be gripped by his unpredictable character and performance. Also, Emilio Salerno’s performance as one of Bonnie and Clyde’s gang members stood out and will have you itching for a good old-fashioned gunfight! And you will be visually be treated! The soaring French star, Laura Hamisultane, was incredible as the dead-eyed, cold-blooded beautiful gangster, Bonnie Parker. Her performance was interesting, as it wasn’t as stereotypical as other Bonnie and Clyde renditions, there wasn’t any unnecessary romance, there was no gazing or kissing, she had a job to do, she got it done. But overall, from the camera work by Adam Shaikh to the realistic special effects by Brooke Lee(MoonJellyFX), the music video looks amazing and you will be impressed from start to finish.

The new single by the Four Dead Crows is dark and foreboding, you can really feel the hidden aggression towards someone’s mistake/s. It’s not only an attractive, catchy track sprinkled with outstanding talent, it also tells a story, one in which every listener could have their own interpretation. I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more from these guys in the near future. Make sure to listen to their other unique pieces!
