Rising duo Everyone You Know (EYK) have released a captivating new video for their latest single, 'Paper Aeroplanes' offering viewers a visual feast to accompany the infectious track.
Directed by Jay Green - known for his work with Nothing But Thieves and Biig Piig -, the video was entirely recorded on an iPhone, channelling the euphoria of a late-night dancefloor with its wavy and transcendental visuals. Speaking about the video, director Jay Green explains their creative process, saying,
"We aimed to capture the club night atmosphere in the 'Paper Aeroplanes' video. To achieve a grainy, pixelated look reminiscent of Instagram stories, we used iPhones exclusively. With the small size and a selfie stick, we created dynamic shots that matched the virtual camera movements we were planning for the 3D scans. All the 3D scans were captured using Luma AI, and we added lighting and camera movements in Unreal Engine. It's incredible how much of the filmmaking process can be accomplished using what's already in your pocket."
'Paper Aeroplanes' has already gained significant support from BBC Radio 1, with praise from Jack Saunders and Clara Amfo. Following EYK's 12-track EP in 2021, which featured popular tracks like 'Higher,' 'Radio,' and 'Just For The Times' featuring Joy Anonymous. The multi-faceted sibling duo has experienced rapid success, accumulating over 150 million worldwide streams with their fusion of garage, dance, and punk. Hits such as 'She Don't Dance' (featured on the FIFA 20 Soundtrack), 'The Drive,' 'Charlie,' 'When The Sun Comes Up,' and 'Our Generation' have garnered a cult following of true and loyal fans.
Becoming a staple in the festival circuit, performing at events like Secret Garden Party, NASS, Sundown, Isle of Wight, Dot to Dot, and delivering rapturous shows at Reading & Leeds, where they even played a secret set.
