Belgian rockers, The Sore Losers, varnishes their raw rock’n’roll spirit with classy Japanese cinema luster in their new video “Got It Bad.” The leather-sneaker combo in the noir background and the chintzy subtitles create an uncannily aesthetic screen where the four rockers smudge their edgy flair in a retro fashion:

“Got It Bad” is from their upcoming third record Skydogs, which will be released on November 4th. The Sore Losers started out back in 2009 and gained wide acclaim in the rock world in Europe for their chart-topping album, Roslyn, back in February 2014. Since then, they’ve played in major festivals and had sold-out shows across Europe. The group has listed Led Zeppelin, The Ramones, Black Sabbath, and Jack White as their influences – which you can feel from their own rock zeal infused with psychedelic elements.
