Pom Poko share “Crazy Energy Night” video
Pom Poko have unveiled the video for their brand new single ‘Crazy Energy Night’. The track is a stand out moment on the Norwegian quartet’s raucous debut album ‘Birthday’ (released 22nd February via Bella Union) and epitomises Pom Poko’s drive to create music that’s noisy,fun, and more than just a little bizarre.
The accompanying video centres on a collection of papier mâché characters crafted by the Norwegian art collective Narves1Biblioteke. Equal parts comical, odd, and repulsive, the video is just as stimulating for the eyes as the tonal lurches of the song are for the ears. Speaking about the project in more detail, Narves1Biblioteke say:
“We got hung-up on the line“slowly turning madman into saviour”. We wanted to do something about transformationand since a baby in the first place is a perfect thing, we decided to startthere and we made all kinds of babies we could possibly think of! The music isvery fun and we try to have fun, for example the where some tiny worms areplaying Martin’s guitar solo on the baby’s teeth. And then the lettuce headcharacter too.”
Today’s release of ‘Crazy Energy Night’ follows the successful release of two other tracks from the‘Birthday’ album – ‘Follow The Lights’ and ‘My Blood’ – which have both picked up extensive radio play around the world (notably from triple j in Australia and BBC 6 Music in the UK) and have firmly set expectations for this album to fully live up to the balls-out individuality that we’ve come to expect from Pom Poko as their creativity courses through this exhilarating debut. Pom Poko have already announced a handful of album launch shows to take place in the UK and Germany and today they have announced an extensive run of European dates to take place throughout April.
