Shortly after making its formal North American debut at SXSW, and quickly following with performances at Canadian Music Week and The Great Escape, Belgium band Few Bits has introduced the stirring, colorful new video for its picturesque single 'Summer Sun'.
Frontwoman Karolien Van Ransbeeck is the lead and sole figure of the deceptively beautiful video, directed by Raven Price and Matthias Bastiaens. Scouring the natural scenery, Van Ransbeeck is plastered with a rainbow collage of paints that simply become part of the video's swirling atmosphere.
The track comes from the band's new album Big Sparks, which touches on a lot of interpersonal themes. On the construction of the record, Van Ransbeeck writes, "I always write autobiographically. I’m not really interested in writing from someone else’s perspective. A song doesn’t just have to sound good, it also has to express exactly what I feel. Otherwise I’d rather throw it away. I don’t come up with fiction. Every word, every comma, has to fit my head and my heart."
