The Fauns – “4AM” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Bristol shoegazers the Fauns released their striking sophomore effort Lights last fall on Invada, the label run by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow. One of the album highlights was “4AM,” a whispery and atmospheric number that moves at a brisk tempo but emotes like a ballad. Director Tia Salisbury’s video features model Kate Elson (twin sister of model/musician/Jack White ex Karen Elson) looking wistful amidst assorted urban and rural scenery. It’s a good look for a great song. Watch below.
