Playing it straight: Straight Arrows premier new film, Buried Again

Director and photographer Mclean Stephenson captures the swing from euphoria to terror in the latest clip from Straight Arrows. This hypnotic and psychedelic short was inspired by nights at the late, legendary exotica club, Sounds of Seduction, and the equally compelling dance moves of the band’s Owen Penglis.

“I listened to the song  and I thought ‘this would suit an urban cowboy psych-type thing, I’ll use my little camcorder’, and then I called Owen and he was into it and said he would grow a moustache,” explains Stephenson of the film’s genesis. “I remember I wanted to have a scene where Owen got electrocuted on a dance machine at timezone, but it got cut for some reason.” Press play.
