Premiere: You need to watch this incredible one-shot video for Bootleg Rascal's 'Mercy'

An impressive feat from Sydney's fave dub-rock-reggae roustabouts.

Sydney-based dub heads Bootleg Rascal have unleashed a pretty phenomenal new video clip for latest single Mercy, shot and directed by Dan Hodgson at Sydney Props Studios in Marrickville. The three-and-a-half-minute clip is captured in one take, and finds frontman Carlos Lara traversing a series of different scenes, in what we can only imagine took a fucking age to nail properly. Guitarist Jimmy Young gives us the scoop: "The clip is a bit of a rarity in that it is actually a ‘one shot’ music video. And it truly is one full take, start to finish, no edits. We didn’t cheat! Because of this there’s definitely a couple of subtle imperfections in there if you know where to look, but they’re actually some of our favourite parts of the clip. We just loved the overall vibe of the final take we chose and when you’re going for a true ‘one shot’ clip it’s never going to be perfect. It’s a bit rough around the edges, just like us, and we wouldn’t have it any other way."

The track is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album Anònimo due October 5, and you'll be able to celebrate its release with the group when they tour that same month well into November. Check the clip and those date below:
