Sundown; the debut single by Jack Found, is as innovative as it is nostalgic.
It's one of those songs... You listen to it once, in the morning on your way to work and catch yourself humming it, hands in the sink as you wash the dishes, Tuesday week, 8 o'clock pm.
With nods to the more colourful side of Britpop, Sundown is refreshing; more like a long afternoon than the end of the evening. It's very "Something For The Weekend," in stereo, a beaming chorus and husky vocals... Oh so slightly Super Fury animals. I can hear it through the car radio, orange skies aglow at the end of the motorway, some DJ vapouring over the outro about his effervescent youth or "that Friday feeling... you know the one."
Directed by Liam Noonan, the video is dizzying, kaleidoscope visuals, a little Lightning Seeds esque as Jack and the lads push you through the looking glass. Its all strange shapes cast on the bathroom walls, washed out crimson hues and subway tunnels. A giant frog and bubbles in the bath, water spilling over the edges and down the overflow. You're never quite sure what you're watching but you can't look away and you don't mind.
With two London dates lined up for September Jack Found is one to watch. They play Nambucca on the 18th and 93 Feet East on the 29th where they will be show casing their latest tunes.
