[Video] King Nun - Hung Around
Words: Sam Geary
After they shared the stream of 'Hung Around' recently, King Nun now bring the video for the single, which is released on May 5 through Dirty Hit.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the video, the three London 19-year-olds said:
"For the video we wanted something surreal, something unhinged and violent that matched its recording and our intent for its performance. We wanted a clear physical restriction to us as we were playing, as we had the video for our previous single ‘Tulip’ which took the form of the tiny yellow four walled room. A need for a restriction to overcome came from our days practicing in rehearsal rooms that were too small, too grey and broken. We went to Youth Hymns and shared these ideas. They had a rough idea with similar themes which eventually became the video we have today: a B movie inspired, David Lynch-ish looking video where we are slowly hypnotised and strangled by alien tentacles as the song progresses.”
This month sees King Nun bring their raucous live show to the inaugural Dirty Hit tour, alongside label mates Superfood and Pale Waves. Dates on link above.
