Nai Harvest – “Ocean Of Madness” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The 2014 Band To Watch duo Nai Harvest dropped their most recent LP, Hairball, back in April, a worthy follow-up to their DIY debut. “Ocean Of Madness” is one of many carefully orchestrated indie-pop songs to be found throughout Hairball, and the new accompanying video mimics its unwavering energy. Singer/guitarist Ben Thompson and drummer Lew Currie play under a skylight as costumed friends parade through the room, showing off their quirks. Director Ed Crisp told us the following about the making of the video:

I had the idea a while ago for a video that was based on a band playing in the middle of a circular dolly track, so that was the sort of starting point for the video. Calum and I got some ideas from the internet and set about building a dolly that can move on a track made of PVC pipe, pure DIY all the way. The concept was built around that, we wanted it to be kinda weird, with loads to look at and loads going on, I think it turned out pretty well considering we only had a day of filming including setting up and testing the dolly. We got some friends in to be in the background and to bring loads of props and costumes etc; for some reason somebody had a kangaroo outfit and a gas mask.
