When you think of the Olympics and music, you probably think of the opening ceremonies. In the case of Jonquil though, the sporting event is used to support their songs rather than vice-versa. Directed by B A N K S, it uses footage from Tokyo Olympiad, the documentary on the 1964 Games in Tokyo. The film’s images fade into each other, are flipped upside-down, and played in reverse. Straight narratives turned into artistic events.
“Get Up” is from Jonquil’s debut EP, One Hundred Suns, available now on Dovecote Records.
