Rainy Milo's cover of The Clash's 1980 single, "Bankrobber," featuring the debut performance of Kossisko (formerly known as 100s) gets a pretty retro visual, directed by TK Anderson. Shot in an old bank in San Francisco, the "Bankrobber" video pairs up their sultry verses with some very old-school glam scenes in the vault and, of course, some of the best looking mugshot poses we've seen.
"I thought it was cool how authentically and rawly The Clash represented the British angst that was around at their time. 'Bankrobber’ was so far removed from the style of music I make that I instantly felt inspired to cover it," Milo said over email. "After looking into the band's history, my interest became even more piqued when I learned that they had also come from a working class background and were inspired by island and reggae music, like me with my British and Caribbean background. Then upon meeting Kossisko, I knew he would be the perfect fit for a feature as well. "
It will be featured on Milo’s debut album, This Thing Of Ours, which drops in February 2015. Watch the video above and look out for new music from Milo and Kossiko.
