Sun Spot Release New Video ‘n-Body’

Bristolian dream-pop duo Sun Spot share terrifying visions of life turned upside down in a new video for “n-Body” directed by Harry Steel.

Formed in 2018, the group returned this year with their latest foray into dark and
experimental indietronica in the form of a new EP; Clipping, released via Rosecoloured Records on the 3rd of September.

Filmed in Bristol’s Upside Down House, the video is a stylish visualization of the new single thanks to director Harry Steel (Haunted Mattress, Muskets, Heriot) and long-time collaborator and A/V wizard Jack Sargent (Sargeshoots, Adoring).

When asked about the ‘n-Body’ video frontman Will said:“We had the best time making this happen! We love working with Harry Steel and we’ve been lucky enough to have him provide several visuals for ‘Clipping’ so it felt like he really understood what we and the record are all about. Himself and Sarge (Sargeshoots) were a literal dream team and that, with an actual upside-down house to run wild in made for a very good and very weird time. I don’t know what to tell you -everything’s upside down!”

From a town in regional Australia that serves as a living relic to how immigrants brought a sense of home to an alien place, to the familiar Mediterranean statues that dot the front lawns of the Melbourne suburbs where the band members live, the inspiration for the record came from the attempts people make at crafting utopia in their backyard (while knowing there is no such thing as a clean slate)”.
