Crystal Fighters perform while lying on their backs in flatbed trucks that are speeding down a freeway, in Rob Brandon's video for Yellow Sun.

It's a development of something he's done before, when part of directing duo Rob & Rob, and this is just as effective.

“The song is really colourful and over the top, so I wanted the video to reflect that," he says. "I shot on a 8K digital camera and then did loads of fuckery in post-production. We went full Peter Jackson’s  Hobbit on it.”
