Hot on the heels of Tommy Sparks’ killer debut single ‘I’m A Rope’ comes his out of the box smash hit ‘She’s Got Me Dancing’. Like Chic jamming with MGMT and Franz Ferdinand the forthcoming single is a brazen dancefloor assault, crammed with memorable hooks, bucketloads of fizzy energy and Tommy’s uniquely modern twist on classic new wave stylings. The video, directed by Eric Wareheim, is 3 minutes and 14 seconds of technicolour comedy genius. Wareheim is one half of the cult American comedian duo Tim & Eric, and Tommy – a huge fan – personally called him to request his creative magic. Their current TV show ‘Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job’ features guest appearances by Johnny Depp, John C Reily, Jeff Goldblum, John Mayer, Weird Al Yankovic, The Saturday Night Live Crew, Elisha Cuthbert… the list goes on and on. Eric very rarely directs videos but he recently helmed fellow fans’ MGMT’s first video ‘The Youth’.
Tommy Sparks’ debut album (produced by Mike Crossey: Razorlight, Arctic Monkeys and Foals) is out May 25th on Island Records.
