Tokyo Video Premiered

Tokyo is the first song from this record we worked on with Nick Zinner,  made us realize that we wanted to work together. It’s about coming back to your wins and losses in your daily reality after a week in Tokyo. Best/weirdest vacation I ever had, cut from the universe and placed in this mad bubble that Tokyo is.

The idea of doing this video was born when we met the artist and photographer Jonatan Gretarsson to be featured in his new book last summer (Jonatan no.3). His style is great and the way he has managed to capture the personality of his subjects in photos is really beautiful so doing a video with him was exciting. We had no idea what would happen on the day of shooting but when we arrived to the studio he had baroque music playing really loud and one by one we stood in front of the camera for more then 20 min each! The result is a black and white video portrait of us… we find it mesmerizing – wonder why?

White Pebbles video by Snorri Bros released

We got super excited when the video directors Snorri Bros, told us they had an idea and wanted to do a video with us. The preparation of the video felt really weird. For example, we went to a muscle car meeting in a parking lot for one of Reykjavík’s suburb supermarket and had to deal with an Icelandic police detective in the back alley of our studio for the police costumes.

On the actual day of shooting, driving around in this bad ass Mustang in a complete police outfit, getting people really confused and then having a stare off against one of Iceland’s leading public figure of the commercial culture made everything make so much sense and felt so right.

Time to watch!

And we will be in Seattle, Reykjavik and Toronto in the next few weeks! Look out for us!

Sports Plus Remix EP is out

We simply enjoy getting remixes of our songs. We have gathered together all the remixes we have of Sports onto an EP. We have remixes by Bonaparte, Atom Max, Lafontaine and one done by ourselves.

The Bonaparte remix is peppered with cut up snares and '80s synthesisers, whilst the distinctive monotone vocals of Kaktus are scattered across layers of sound. Bonaparte said: “I discovered Fufanu whilst on a trip through Iceland and after meeting in a Reykjavík pub I managed to smuggle the single tracks of their single ‘Sports’ past the security check onto the airplane. Back in Berlin I decided to redress it into a psychedelic slow-motion b-movie soundtrack – one foot in the past, one in the future and Fufanu in the middle.”

You can get the EP from our shop or any other channel you might choose
