Grammy-nominated duo Camelphat and multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jake Bugg have unveiled the visuals for their latest single ‘Be Someone’.
Featuring British actor Charley Palmer-Rothwell best known for his role in Dunkirk, the video for ‘Be Someone’ follows twin brothers who are trying to make a name for themselves and ‘be someone’ through very different means – one a cult leader, the other a rockstar – but both experiencing the highs and lows of worship, leadership, fame, and loneliness.
The track is set to be a summer smash having already been named Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ and picking up support from key tastemakers including Phil Taggart, Diplo, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Nick Grimshaw and more. The single has so far racked up almost 4 million streams on Spotify alone and reached #1 on the BBC Radio 1 Hype Chart.
The Liverpool duo has firmly established themselves as one of the most in-demand acts around, enjoying worldwide success thanks to their unique blend of bass-driven house and melodic hooks. Making their mark in 2017 with their Grammy-nominated hit Cola (which was certified Gold in the UK and has garnered over 130 million streams on Spotify alone), Camelphat has continued to release a flurry of club-ready anthems such as ‘Panic Room’ featuring Au/Ra and ‘Breathe’ featuring Jem Cooke.
Their latest smash features singer/songwriter Jake Bugg. Best known for his multi-platinum selling singles including ‘Lightning Bolt’ and ‘Two Fingers’, the Brit Award winner’s debut album also reached #1 in the UK Official Charts and was nominated for a coveted Mercury Prize.
Camelphat have kicked off 2019 in style playing some of the world’s biggest festivals so far this year including Glastonbury, Coachella, EDC Vegas and BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. The duo is set to continue their busy schedule further this year playing huge performances at the likes of Tomorrowland, Hideout and Reading & Leeds. Not stopping there they have also launched their Ibiza Residency, BODYWORKS which is taking place at Hi Ibiza every Tuesday alongside Solardo and Fisher. This year will also see the pair play their biggest headline show to date at o2 Brixton Academy, London on 26th October which is sold out.
‘Be Someone’ is sure to prove one of summer 2019’s biggest anthems and further solidify Camelphat’s status as one of the biggest dance acts in the world.
