Graffiti6 Release Trippy ‘Stare Into the Sun’ Video
While Graffiti6's last video 'Free' was about thoughtful contemplation, the London duo's latest offering, 'Stare Into the Sun,' uses trippy imagery and video effects to create some eye-popping visuals that you'll probably want to watch more than once.
"This is the summer full of color, baby," Jamie Scott sings, stating the obvious as aqua hearts and purple streaks of light flash behind him. Scott drives a date down a psychedelic highway, plays piano in an interstellar orange and blue landscape, and gets a pair of cartoon wings as he plays guitar.
Bright-colored shapes swirl into oblivion and scenes vanish into a neverending tunnel like an inverse version of the White Stripes' 'Seven Nation Army' video combined with a bit of Austin Powers influence. Near the end, the background turns from black to white as Scott finally finds the sun.
Also, if you were digging Scott's attire in the video, you're in luck. His t-shirt (as well as posters featuring the same artwork) are available on the band’s website and on their tour.
'Stare Into the Sun' had an official video back in 2010, but the new clip, directed by Jimi Crayon, was filmed after the duo's 'Colours' album was re-released on Capitol Records. Graffiti6, comprised of Jamie Scott and Tommy Danvers, recently appeared on 'Conan' to promote the album and will perform on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on May 24. They begin their first headlining tour on May 29. Be sure to pick up their album over on iTunes.
