Swedish Beatle-esque rockers Supralunar released a brand new video today for the eponymously titled track ‘Supralunar’ from their critically acclaimed album ‘A New Hope’
(Dead End Exit Records /Sound Pollution).
The video makes fun of rock cliches and the band finds themselves reluctantly messing up a hotel room.
The video is very toungue in cheek. Three pretty well-behaved boys try to live up to their rocknroll image. As much as we love the cliches of rocknroll and are a part of them you need to step aside and laugh at it says lead singer and guitarist Petri Tuulik.
The magically empowered hobo that made the bands acquaintance in the first video ‘People Like Us’ (available on YouTube) has now made a career for himself as the bands manager.
The idea for this video came out of pure coincidence. The band got a quite unusual request to play a gig at 9 o clock in the morning. The venue was a hotel room in one of Stockholm’s fancier hotels and the audience 40 Germans who were on a guided hotel tour. Since the band had access to the room the day before in order to set everything up a crazy idea was born…..”Hey, what if we could actually shoot a video in a few hours?“. With great help from a few friends they managed to shoot most of the video in 10 hours and also probably set the world record for the worlds quietest videoshoot.
The screenplay and directing is done by Supralunar’s lead singer and guitarist Petri Tuulik and a good friend by the name of Herman Hillberg handled the photography.
Supralunar was formed 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden and has since then released the EP “Unzip To Rock!:EP” through Cdbaby in 2012. The band has played about 100 shows in Sweden perfecting their very entertaining and varied liveact. They have also put out 3 videos which got the attention of Swedish label Dead End End Exit records and early 2014 the deal was inked. The full length debut album “A New Hope” was released worldwide in January 2015
