Wild Beasts - Alpha Female
Today Wild Beasts have shared the fantastic new video to their latest single Alpha Female. Directed by Sasha Rainbow, the film, shot in Bangalore, India, featuring the ever growing female skateboarding community taking the Western World by storm. "When I first heard the Wild Beasts song ‘Alpha Female', I had the epiphany to film the growing female skateboard scene outside the Western world" explains director Rainbow. "In places like Afghanistan, Cambodia and India, skating has not been solidified as a male sport and therefore has had a massive cultural impact, teaching values about self empowerment through skateboarding. I thought India, with its colours and cinematic landscapes, was the place to do it". Take a watch for yourselves below.
Alpha Female is taken from Wild Beasts ‘Boy King' album, available now.
