Having just made their debut on cult record label Tough Love (who brought you Becoming Real, the Fair Ohs and Slime) with their moving new single 'Sap Solid', the young band hailing from Leeds, wittily named Fun Adults, have already caught our attention with their delicately lush, layered acoustic sounds. Premiering their new video for the track on Dazed, the two members of the band have proved their talents in video-making as well - creating a visual collage of frame-by-frame hand drawn images, made of a combination of paint, pastels and oil on glass on a light box, in line with their poignant aesthetics.
Here they tell us more about the video and their attempts to capture light and colour as the perfect counterpart to their sounds:
"The main objective when producing the video was to capture the colour, rhythm and texture of the track. We were keen to create something that felt really human and organic, so a traditional paint on paper approach made sense. This enabled us to work much more freely and spontaneously and gives the video a nice vibrancy. We're big fans of Impressionism and Fauvism, which were really influential in terms of capturing light, colour and using different forms of mark-making. The day - night cycle is a really simple device but seemed to capture the mood of the track really well and emphasise the different dynamics. Keeping all our artwork in house enables us to work really closely with the music. Linking the form and process of both practices is key, and the two are very much intertwined." - Fun Adults
