Icelandic Post-punk Trio Fufanu Strip Things Back for Their ‘Tokyo’ Video

Fufanu have teamed up with artist and photographer Jonatan Gretarsson to bare their souls in the stripped down visual for their latest offering ‘Tokyo’.

The band met Gretasson in the Summer of 2017 and ended up with their portraits featured in his book, Jonaton no.3. Fufanu told us that they had no idea what would happen on the day of the video shoot but, when they arrived at the studio Gretasson had baroque music playing really loudly, and one by one they stood in front of the camera for more than 20 minutes each.

The resulting visual is an intimate monochrome portrait of the band. It’s also pretty easy on the eye.

‘Tokyo’ is the latest track to be taken from Fufanu’s forthcoming second album, Sports, that’s produced by Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and follows their 2015 debut, A Few More Days To Go. ‘Tokyo’ was the very first track they worked on with Zinner and deals with coming back to reality after what the band describe as the “best/weirdest vacation” ever in the “mad bubble” that is Tokyo.
