LarzRanda 'Lifeguard' by THUNDERLIPS - now at Good Egg in the UK

Cat Velez - 16th Sept 2015

Auckland-based directing duo THUNDERLIPS have been one of our favourite discoveries this year. In fact Sean Wallace and Jordan Dodson have been making very cool videos for a couple of years, for New Zealand artists such as multi-instrumentalist Sheep, Dog & Wolf, indie pop band The Eversons, and rapper and pop-culture afficionado LarzRanda. 

Their two previous LarzRanda videos, Frankenstein and Cosby Kid, played on 90s sitcom tropes and classic hip-hop clips respectively. But their latest for Lifeguard definitely takes a darker, and more cinematic turn. In this one, Randa gets to expand her acting range, and take on some creepier traits, stalking and obsessing over a pretty girl she doesn't know, and employing some extreme and shady means to get her attention. 

Meanwhile, THUNDERLIPS, whose prolific run of work includes Breathe, their second video for Sheep, Dog & Wolf, have been recently signed to Good Egg for UK representation.
