UK comedy legend Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh has made is music video directorship debut for the latest single from TANLINES.
Cheese on Toast reads : Tanlines, who are influenced by Barratt, toyed with the possibility of listing the Mighty Boosh as a creative partner in their liner notes. Word reached Barratt, who after listening to an early version of the album realized ‘All of Me’ served as a perfect musical counterpoint to some of the imagery he was interested in exploring, and an opportunity to experiment making music videos.
Barratt says, “At the time I wrote the treatment, I was watching a particular film by Fabrice Du Welz called ‘The Ordeal’ which is a really good, strange, macabre film with some really interesting movement and dance bits in that…I’m always trying to do anything between comedy and horror. Because you have such a strong flavor with Tanlines’ music, it’s quite fun to offset that with bleak imagery.”
The video stars the band performing on an old-time late-night television show to an elderly crowd…
