Tunng’s Hustle by James Moore

David Knight - 1st Mar 2010

The promo for the first single from Tunng's fourth studio album And Then We Saw Land is the first video by James Moore - he and producer Will Spicer usually shoot live concerts and other longform content - and a real departure for the band: they actually appear in it.

The promo for the first single from Tunng's fourth studio album And Then We Saw Land is the first video by James Moore - he and producer Will Spicer usually shoot live concerts and other longform content - and a real departure for the band: they actually appear in it. "We wanted to create a promo that showcased the band themselves as they hadn't appeared in any of their previous videos," says James. So he made them the house band in a waiting room from hell - or in fact, as James describes it, "a wonky purgatory" through which various characters pass, carrying a treasured possession. Shot in an abandoned police station in Hertfordshire on RED, James says, "I wanted to embrace the banality of waiting in order to contrast with the seemingly chirpy nature of the song. I also wanted to put a stuffed dog in a video."
