Fun.’s Music Video “Walking The Dog” Is, Well, Just Plain Fun

If you haven’t heard of the band Fun., you’d better research them quickly.  You might be surprised to find out that the outfit is fronted by Nate Ruess, formerly of pop rock darlings The Format.  You shouldn’t be surprised, however, to discover that the music is catchy, clever, and all around, um, fun.  The band’s single “Walking The Dog” is a delightful blend of pop and pleasure, but the accompanying video is dynamite.  Filled with with jazzy neon colors, fancy videography mashups, and creative split-screen shots, the video exemplifies the band’s ability to have a blast while making good music.  Don’t believe me?  See for yourself.

The Epilogues Unleash Sensational Music Video For “Hunting Season”

You may remember back in August there was a Sovereign Sound post about how two indie bands from Colorado managed to completely devour the snobby LA music scene with killer performances at Cinespace.  Well one of those bands, elctro alt rock powerhouses The Epilogues, has just released their first music video for their single “Hunting Season”- and you won’t believe your squinty music-loving eyes.  The video, directed by Colorado resident Dylan Novak, bears a look of professionalism well beyond that of a first-time, low-budget, musical project.  The young Novak’s undeniable talent radiates throughout the three and a half minute mini-film, as does the band’s made-for-fame theatrics.  Each member looks perfectly natural in front of the lens, especially frontman Chris Heckman with his passionate gestures and sultry facial expressions.  The outdoor setting for the video perfectly compliments the serenly beautiful and spooky song.  Check out this masterpiece and dare to tell me you disagree.


London Project: UK Alternative Rockers The Coral Showoff New Video & Prep for European Tour

British alternative rock outfit The Coral just released the video for their new single “More Than A Lover”.  Set in all black and white, the video channels an old-fashioned photog feel and incorporates intriguing and beautiful scenery.  The song is serene and phantasmagoric and will surely be played abundantly on the band’s upcoming tour.  The Coral will be playing shows all over Europe and the UK and you can bet your bottom dollar that Sovereign Sound will be there to preview, review, and see how awesome the experience is.
