DITCH DAYS – “ANDY KAUFMAN”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
Lisbon based trio Ditch Days tune in to 90s retro-grooves and a throwback to halcyon days with a slick, feel good visual clip for new track ‘Andy Kaufman’. Lifted from the forthcoming 5-track EP Office Space due this Spring. The band create a harmony of peppy-paced 90s tinged indie-pop coupled with breezy vocals and irreverent attitude.
“Andy Kaufman’s music video was supposed to be an analogy about our lives and about how hard it is to find the right headspace to focus on having a band and writing songs, with so much happening in our lives at the same time, personally and professionally. In the end, in our heads it ended up being a music video about friendship. We’ve always loved to do things in a DIY fashion, from recording to designing our album covers and posters, and our music videos are no exception. We wrote a script where we would be in the middle of a party where a lot of things were going on – people having shots, people playing beer pong, a couple getting to know each other, some random guy passing out on the couch, etc. – and we invited our friends to be the cast. After a couple of hours trying to get the perfect shot, everybody was having a lot of fun, some of them were already drunk (haha), and the end result was really natural as we managed to turn that into an actual party with the help of everyone who showed up. Now, every time we think about this music video it only reminds us of our friends and how cool it is to have all this people in our lives, willing to spend an entire afternoon helping us getting the perfect shot and how, in the end, everybody had some much fun it didn’t even look like we were shooting a music video!”
