Following the claustrophobic intensity of their “Wall Watcher” video, Sunflower Bean are back with a decidedly more mellow clip for “Easier Said,” the lead single from debut album Human Ceremony.
The Brooklyn trio trekked to an empty field on a cloudy day for the Jesse Ruuttila and Charlotte Hornsby-directed vid, which finds them playing with fire, confronting a masked man, and playing their glistening, dream pop-leaning tune in a haze of smoke.
“We wanted to do something different with the video,” lead singer Julia Cumming told i-D. “A lot of our other videos have been shot on iPhones, which was cool, but we wanted to try the polar opposite of that which is why we asked the director, Charlotte Hornsby, to work on film. We also wanted the visuals to work with the feeling of the song more so than the literal meaning. The movement, the elements, and the colors in the video capture that vibe.”
