Swing Republic – Long Legs (Official Music Video) #electroswing film noir

June 11, 2020



OUT NOW! The BEST of SWING REPUBLIC:
LONG LEGS was the title track of the second EP building to the electro swing pioneers ‘BEST OF’ compilation at the end of 2018. Featuring brand new material (both electro swing and more vintage influenced styles) LONG LEGS is the neo noir standard bearer for another collection of 4 expertly crafted songs inspired, as before, by the sounds of vintage jazz, swing, funk and soul but given a contemporary spin by subject matter and production. LONG LEGS again boasts the vocals and lyrics of long time collaborator, Danish jazz singer Karina Kappel and comes complete with this film noir video shot on location in a Brighton hotel. The other tracks feature classic vintage samples from the 30s, 40s and 50s and performances including The Boswell Sisters on LET YOURSELF GO.

About the ARTIST:

SWING REPUBLIC was born as the side project of a platinum selling Danish songwriter and producer, Per Ebdrup. In love with the sound of swing, Per remixed old and obscure vintage gems in his spare time off as composer to hire. These tracks would eventually be brought together in ELECTRO SWING REPUBLIC (2011) that was one of the first complete electro swing albums ever released. The second album MIDNIGHT CALLING (2013) saw the introduction of jazz vocalist Karina Kappel and featured the massively popular CRAZY IN LOVE version that has notched up well over 4 million plays on Spotify alone and even higher numbers on YouTube.

Their third album MO’ ELECTRO SWING REPUBLIC (2015) combined the sounds and style of both their first 2 releases mixing original songwriting with a more remix based approach to vintage covers.
SWING REPUBLIC continue to have many millions of YouTube views, 140,000+ monthly Spotify listeners and multiple Platinum selling albums.

LYRICS:

long legged girlfriend alone in her living room, thinkin’ ’bout all the harm she wants to do,
burnin’ holes in old photos with a cigarette, tryin’´ta get the world back, never has no regrets

daddy´s little angel alone in her living room, scheming and planning my doom, twirlin’ her hair, got a stoned up stare on her face as she´s twirlin’ the truth

CHORUS:
oh don´t you take it out on me girl, dont you take it out on me,
oh don’t you take it out on me,
oh no, won’t you leave me alone now my girl, won’t you leave me now
oh won’t you leave me alone my girl

long legged girl with a smile and a grin, as she sees that it’s working I’m shiverin´
down on my knees got me beggin’ her please, let it go and let me be me

you think you’re kinda cute with you´re superior style, had me fooled for a while by your ambiguous smile,
it’s all in your head, it’s not true what you said, you’re delusional girl if you think i’m not aware

CHORUS

long legs are crawling all over the floor trying to find all the pieces of what was before, caught in a web reaching over her head you can try but I’m smarter than that,

CHORUS

  • Yeah, great music and all, but just for a change, can we see a straight woman somewhere? I'm tired of the idea that every hot woman must be gay.

  • Okay, I found this via Spotify (I have an electro swing playlist and I like searching for bands and songs), this had caught my attention and after listening so much many times I search for the video and I didn't expect this, it's cool! How bad they didn't kiss :'(

  • CANT STOP LISTENING TO THIS SONG!! The video reminds me a lot of the old musical City of Angels, which also revolves around a noir writer and the character he wrote, as two intertwining stories. Even the use of color schemes is similar (real world=chromatic, noir fiction world= monochrome). Did you guys perhaps take inspiration? ;D

  • This song is so sexy that I’m addicted to it at night. I also like to think in this video that the writer ( the woman ) fell in love with the character she created and has sexual fantasies about her.

  • I personally think this is garbage and your the Shania Twain of swing. Congratulations your single handely ruining a genra of music by turning it into pop. But now to be positive you do have a good voice and your video was well done, and creative.

  • Not a bad song, but I think it's only good to listen.
    I don't think anybody could swing to that.
    Anyway good song!
