Hunting unleashed a new animated video from Sparklehorse’s ‘Gold day‘.
Hunting is a Vancouver based Canadian indie electro-rock trio.
They recently released this video ahead of their new album ‘Whatever You Need’ set to release on November 1st, 2019.
Hunting was initially a solo project of singer and songwriter Bradley Ferguson.
He released his debut solo album 5 years ago ‘Hunting‘.
Hunting is barely recognizable as the same band it’s gone from a solo project to a trio, from folk to catchy electro-rock vibe, and from wistful melancholy to buoyant exuberance.
The album due for release was initially intended as a quick follow up to his 2014 debut album, but the initial sessions stalled.
Bradley put the album on the back burner and went on to produce an electro-pop LP for vocalist Jessica Yliruusi.
Eventually, he got back on track with the addition of two new members, Jessica Yliruusi & Dustin Bentall.
Together they have crafted a catchy re-do on Sparklehorse’s ‘Gold Day’.
The video is done in stop motion animation, the lyrics and imagery are inspired from Sparklehorse’s real-life history.
The video seamlessly blends with the bands muted melancholic tones and soft swooning vocals.
Created by band member Jessica as a tribute to band member and vocalist Mark Linkous from Sparklehorse.
On inquiring why they chose this particular track, Bradley explains:
“Sparklehorse’s album It’s A Wonderful Life changed my thought about songwriting and production,” My favourite has always been ‘Gold Day,’ probably the most uplifting song on that particular album.– Bradley Ferguson
