Rival Sons Debut Video For 'Until the Sun Comes' - Watch Now

Rival Sons have revealed a music video for their track 'Until the Sun Comes'. The track is the band's second video from their new album, 'Head Down', following the release of 'Keep On Swinging' in September.

The video for 'Until the Sun Comes' was filmed with director Simon Gersel, who is well-known for his stop-motion work and his work with The White Stripes and Bjork. Check out the video, here.

Rival Sons frontman Jay Buchanan comments: "I really dig this video; it's a completely new direction for us. Filming videos can be very awkward for me, but this time I got to ride a dirt bike out in the desert where I'm most comfortable; it just felt so natural for the song. We're all pretty good on a bike so we just took turns doing tricks and trying to outdo each other. We ended up with some sweet footage. Nice."

Video director Simon Gersel added: "The video took about six weeks to make, two weeks of prep and four weeks of animation, including three weeks of post-production. This clip has references from Time Rider to apocalyptic science-fiction, i.e. Mad Max, especially Italian B-movies etc. like Nuovi Barbari - sometimes just the posters for these films are great inspiration! Plus more well-known series such as Knight Rider and Street Hawk etc.

"The character and the bike were made from different toys customised and aged (about four inches). The base of the décor is made of polystyrene covered in real sand. The film set resembles a sand dune. We worked with three different sets, so there were effectively three different bikes and the characters. The set with the girl was shot in live action whereas the other travellings were in stop-motion, image by image. We worked with a naked model covered in glycerine, then covered in sand so the sand stuck. It was hard work despite the presence of a naked lady made of sand.

"I like playing with clichés ('I know you've heard it all before...'); it allows us to be direct with formats for a short clip - at the same time I look to remain accessible. The idea is a meeting of inspiration - a spur of the moment thing, that finishes with a sexual rapport, but I wanted it to remain a clip for everyone; people see what their age permits and it remains fun for everyone."

Rival Sons' 'Head Down' is out now.

Rival Sons - Hollow Bones (Album Review)
Wed 15 Jun 2016
Let’s start with a bold assertion: cloning human beings is now a reality. It must be. There’s simply no other way to explain how Rival Sons – who’ve been touring solidly for the last two years – found the time and energy to make ‘Hollow Bones’. Sure, they could have bashed out a fatigued stop-gap release in-between gigs, but to have crafted yet another fully realised gem at lightning speed? It can only be the work of scientifically manufactured doppelgangers.
