London duo Jockstrap precede upcoming release with video for new track 'David Swan'

Jockstrap is the duo of 20-year-olds Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye, and premiering above is the pigeon-starring video for new track 'David Swan'.

The pair first met at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and after bonding over similar musical interests, they soon formed Jockstrap and began making music together. "Sometimes I have a really clear idea of the sound world, other times he leads it completely," Ellery says of their writing process. "It's pretty even-stevens."

Speaking about their name, Ellery jokes that they picked it in part to deter people. "It's also a nod to maximalist concepts and sex. [It has that] nice double cacophonic sound. It sounds like Goldfrapp!"

You can get a taste of their sound - which pushes bright, hypercolour synths to the centre - via the track and video above, and watch out for a larger project from the duo coming very soon. Keep up with the duo's movements before then via their site here.
