Night Idea

Easy To Lie

[Video Premiere]

~

by tom johnson

There lies a magic within animated videos that can occasionally detract, or perhaps distract, from the music that props the whole thing up, and perhaps you have to listen to Night Idea’s ‘Easy To Lie’ in its own term to appreciate the rippling buoyancy of its presentation, however there’s no doubting the power of the combination here – and we’re very pleased to share it with the world today.

“The idea for the video started out based on my life experience of what it feels like to hunt for a job after schooling. You’re presented with nothing but constant optimism when really thats not the case at all.
It really takes hard work, perseverance and an unwillingness to give up, unlike the image of point A to point B that education can present. The character here tries to solve that problem by lying on his resume.”
– Emily Kundrot, Director

Taken from the band’s ‘Breathing Cold’ LP, which was released earlier this year, the track is a shimmering pop moment that tempers the more mathy side of Night Idea’s workings and fills the whole thing with colourful, instrumental excursions that feel brilliantly alive. Now joined by the beautiful new film – a striking animated clip directed Emily Kundrot – it makes for a supremely pleasant deviation from the day, and you can watch it again and again, below.
