SPQR Reveal Video For New Single ‘Just Sumfin’ Out Now

13th March 2020

Hot on the heels of their recent support tour with HMLTD and a sold out Manchester headline show, Liverpool art-rock band SPQR are pleased to reveal the official video for their new single ‘Just Sumfin’, which is out now.

The track was recently added to Spotify’s Hot New Bands playlist and Deezer’s Freshest Bands Around playlist, with the video slated on VEVO’s All New Indie channel.

Filmed at Vessel Studios and directed by long-time collaborator Liam Powell, it’s a different approach from the band this time around—simplistic, clean visuals with sharp aesthetics that mirror their increasingly refined songwriting, which is now beginning to turn heads at BBC Radio One, Radio X and Amazing Radio, who included the single in their Tunes of The Week recently.

“Having previously made fairly abstract narrative videos with the band, I felt a bit out of my depth when they said they wanted to do a performance video!” explains Powell. “The biggest challenge was trying to do something simple in a way that both felt unique to the band and captured where they’re at currently. We wanted to do this big studio shoot, but in a way that was a little grounded, so we had the idea to do a ‘making of’ for that big glossy music video shoot we had imagined.”

“The idea for the video was that it looked super pro, like we were about to do a full big thing,” adds front man, songwriter and producer Peter Harrison, “but the real video was like a little tester take, hence why you can see all the set, crew and paraphernalia, and it ends with a final take about to begin. I explained that terribly didn’t I… just watch it you’ll know what I mean! It was filmed by our wonderful director Liam Powell and our lovely friends played the parts of the crew. It’s all one shot, and looks great. Thanks to Vessel Studios too for letting us invade your space for an afternoon!”

‘Just Sumfin’ is the second track to be taken from SPQR’s recently-announced forthcoming third EP, No Brain, No Pain, released on 30th April 2020 via all good digital service providers, with the record also available on vinyl via their own label, Nuthin Gud Records.
