Current Dork cover stars Foals have dropped the video to their new single, ‘2am’.
The latest taster of their forthcoming album ‘Life Is Yours’ – set to drop this summer – the clip was filmed in Kyiv, and directed by Tanu Muiño with an entirely Ukrainian crew.
Muiño is best known for directing Lil Nas X’s video for ‘Montero’, as well as Cardi B’s ‘Up’ and visuals for the likes of Post Malone, The Weeknd, Lizzo and Rosalia.
Talking about the video, frontman Yannis Phillippakis explains: “We love Tanu’s work. It wasn’t a collaboration we would’ve predicted, but I met up with Tanu in London, we hit it off and decided to work together. The moment I spoke to Tanu she was interested in the repetition of the lyrics, which is symbolic of being stuck in repeated patterns of bad behaviour. She wanted to visualise that with labyrinths and maze-like loops.”
Tanu adds, “Foals are one of my favourite bands, so this project was a dream to work on with Yannis. The labyrinth idea came from playing the track on repeat and the visuals came together when I met with Yannis. We connected on the creative, which is the ideal situation in videos to have him explain the meaning behind the track and the inspiration of the song.
