A couple of weeks back, Indoor Pets (or the band formerly known as Get Inuit) returned with ‘So Soon’, another noisy yet buoyant cut from the band.
Now they’ve shared a video for the single, and they’ve got pretty inventive for it. The clip itself depicts frontman Jamie Glass pottering around London visiting various landmarks within a series of Polaroid pictures. But getting this effect was actually a lot harder than it first seemed. Jamie’s actually singing normally while everything else is a lot quicker than normal. Jamie had to lip-sync to quarter of the track’s usual speed and then the frames themselves were converted to 12 fames per second to make them appear as if they’re in stop motion, before finally being imposed on to Polaroid frames. Phew! It was well worth all that effort though…
Indoor Pets are just about to kick off a UK tour in the coming days. Starting in Birmingham, they’ll also be headed to Newcastle, Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham and London. Tickets are on sale now.
