Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes: Spray Paint Love

by Andrew MacGregor


Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes: “Spray Paint Love” - 3 mins 25s

Frank Carter is a health and safety officer’s nightmare. Crowd surfing, stage dives, rafter hanging… keeping the man on terra firma is a challenge. For this ‘Spray Paint Love’ promo, director Ross Cairns offers a clever solution: trap the Rattlesnakes frontman in a mirror dimension. Well, at least he’s enjoying himself.

Sporting a floral shirt and bleached hair, Carter patrols his reflective chamber like a caged party animal. The track itself lunges back and forth, a crunching riff underpinning Carter’s macabre romance: “Barbed wire roses all covered in blood”. Colourful and spiky.
