Exciting young Irish DJ and producer Shane Codd has unveiled the official music video for his floorfilling debut single ‘Get Out My Head’, out now on Polydor.
Directed by Hugh Rochfort, the video is set in lockdown on a suburban street and shows two young neighbours, a male and female, go to war with each other over a minor slight. As the video progresses, we see the couple chase each other through the streets as their rising attraction escalates.
A piano-driven vocal house banger, ‘Get Out My Head’ possesses all the right elements for infiltrating charts and club sound systems alike. A viral sensation, the track has amassed over 6.6 million streams, hit #1 on both UK and Ireland Shazam Charts and continues to climb the singles charts too. In the UK, it’s currently #24 in the UK charts and #28 in the Airplay charts having picked up playlist support from BBC Radio 1, Capital FM and Kiss FM.
Shane created the track at home in his bedroom in Cavan, as a response to the suffocating Covid-19 lockdown. He explains: “I wanted to get out and do things and I also wanted the stress of covid out of my head, like I’m sure a lot of us did. The vocals really sat with me, making the track was like an escape for me. I remember the first time I played in it my car I got a release and a feel good vibe of it. I imagined festivals and people dancing, which felt like a distant memory during Covid.“
He continues: “I posted the track online and immediately got a reaction. I was blown away. People were sharing it and tagging me, I was grateful and happy they liked it. I received messages from some people saying that it helped them during lockdown and that for them it was the tune of 2020, I couldn’t believe the reaction it was getting.”
Heavily influenced by the 90s and early-2000s dance sound, Shane Codd’s first big break came when he became a finalist at the 2018 ‘Breakout Producer’ competition held by famous Irish DJ Mark McCabe. A star in the making, ‘Get Out My Head’ is evidence of a talented young artist destined for the top.
