Video: Lux Lisbon – Get Some Scars

Lux Lisbon has instantly become a favorite of mine. Their music speaks for itself, thanks to the band’s memorable sound and excellent songwriting. The video for their single, “Get Some Scars“, is extremely quirky. Inspired by a nice sized helping of Wes Anderson films and artwork by Nathan Vernau, the band has an art style that is completely unique, making for an entertaining watch. My favorite segment in the video had to of been “Trashed November 19ST 1984″. I found the failed paper ball throw to be awkwardly relatable, and on more than one occasion. It’s the sort of situation where I’d mumble to myself, “Great. I didn’t know I had to be in the NBA to throw a piece of trash away.”

I’ll be sure to feature their EP come March 25th, as well as news about a tour around the UK in support of its release. However, if you happen to be in London on March 14th make plans to be at the Bull and Gate for Lux Lisbon‘s EP release show.
