New Fingers of the Sun video is absolutely the most adorable thing in the history of ever
Fingers of the Sun kick summer into full gear with its video for "The Leaves Were So Green," directed by Zorab Ovsepyan and released this week, a song that sounds like a sunrise looks. Taken from its self-titled album released earlier this year, the song is a summer jam with a hook that's hard to let pass through your head.
We would have loved to be a passerby in whatever park the video was filmed in, because it looks like it was probably a grand old time for everyone involved. What's especially telling is how good the band is in front of the camera.
Not only does Ovsepyan manage to capture them in a completely unnatural habitat playing unamped guitars -- he makes them look like they're supposed to be there. It's a feat enough just to get lips and hand synced, but to make it all look natural is a triumph. Plus, the "bum-bum-bum" part around 1:50 would make any mother tear up a little, it's such a virtuous little segment.
If you've been hunting for your summer single, this is it. It has everything you need, a smiling, dancing band, a park on a clear day and even bubbles. If nothing else, we'll guarantee this will brighten your day a little bit.
