Brighton quartet FUR might still be fairly new on the scene, but they’ve developed something of a knack for sepia-tinged, playfully nostalgic videos.
The clip for last year’s single ‘If You Know That I’m Lonely’ (released in conjunction with DIY’s collaborative project Jäger Curtain Call dontchaknow) currently sits at nearly 4 million Youtube streams, and the visual for newie ‘Angel Eyes’ picks up that baton with aplomb.
Shot on grainy, Super8-style film and featuring the band running around in a ‘Hard Day’s Night’-esque caper, flirting with a girl whilst learning the rules of croquet, it’s an utterly charming introduction to the band’s eponymous debut EP - set for release, fittingly, on Valentine’s Day.
Of ‘Angel Eyes’, the band say: “It’s about the idea of a potential relationship that never came to fruition despite the scenarios that played out in your head giving you hope.”
Luckily, the video is a far less melancholy affair.
Watch below, and keep your (angel) eyes out for a limited edition red vinyl that’ll be released especially for the day of luuurrrvvve.
