Fever Party Unleash Video 'Stay Lost'

Tuesday 28th May, 2019 10:43AM

Hot on the heels of Fever Party's first ever collection Stay Lost comes a brand new video for the EP's title track from the Tāmaki Makaurau garage rock duo of Gareth Shute and Jay Purkiss. Created by and starring Shute with additional filming by Judith Lett, the clip follows the horn-loving songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning author on a nocturnal vision-quest throughout the streets of suburban Auckland, unaware that he's got a date with destiny and a very large hammer waiting to strike. What happens next may surprise you – Shute opened up about the origins of his tense and dreamlike creation...

"The video idea came about because I still had the very cheap trumpet that I used in The Brunettes when I toured overseas in that band. It was always a terrible instrument but recently a certain four-year old jammed a cleaning rod down the barrel, ruining it completely. It also seemed like featuring the trumpet might be a nice call back to the video for 'Working Love' in which it appears but never gets played. The song 'Stay Lost' is partly about climate change, but I wanted the video to be lighthearted. My dad had given me an overly large sledgehammer for a fence I was fixing last year, so it soon became clear to me what the storyline would be ... and I reckon my bandmate Jay Purkiss looks pretty good lugging that beastly thing around."
