Watch: Kingswood 'I Can Feel That You Don't Love Me' Video


The clip for "I Can Feel That You Don't Love Me", the lead single from Kingswood's forthcoming debut, Microscopic Wars, is, on the surface, a slickly smooth affair — all secret agent suits and sexy silhouettes. But, much like the band's music, there's notable rough edges. Look a bit closer and these blokes appear as though they've been forced into these formal fashions, hastily handed a comb and beard-trimmer moments before commencement. Similarly, the warehouse set has been ideally lit, flooded with bright, distracting neons to hide the years of damp and mould build-up. All mirages and smoke-covered mirrors, or just much more than the initial glance exposes? We're siding with the latter.

Despite a painful run of technical issues during their set, Kingwood were one of the standout moments of the recent Splendour In The Grass festival. Make sure you catch them on their massive upcoming national tour, which kicks off in a couple of weeks time.
