Says Beck of the clip: “I've always been a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino so when we were creating the idea for the ‘Tapping on the Roof’ music video Matt Jeston (Director) came up with the idea that we roughly base the video on the torture scene from Reservoir Dogs. It's such a great movie and I'm so happy that I get to pay my respects to it through my own art. We filmed the video on location at Leftys Old Time Music Hall in Brisbane, which was aesthetically perfect for the vibe we were going for. We all had so much fun acting and dressing up for our roles but did have to wrap up a little early to clean all the fake blood off the dance floor!”
The video premiered via Tone Deaf who stated “filmed at the Brisbane’s Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall, which created the perfect backdrop to her uniquely gorgeous track, the click-clack of percussion echoing its title perfectly. The Tarantino influence definitely doesn’t end at the video either, as ‘Tapping On The Roof’ wouldn’t feel at all out of place on a Kill Bill soundtrack.”
PANACEA has garnered rave reviews since its April release, with its ambitious arrangements and wildly diverse influences – from jazz and soul to glitchy beats – gelling together into something that feels completely unique. Beck’s second LP, the record was built around a week-long session at the legendary 301 Byron Bay studios – just days before it closed for good. Working with long-time collaborator and engineer Jeff Lovejoy Lovejoy (Powderfinger, Tex Perkins, Evil Eddie), who also produced the album. The record may be full of experimentation, but it never strays from the simple formula of wonderful songs performed with genuine passion.
