We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Friendly Rich’s new music video for their song “The Melon Sun” (watch it below). The track is taken from his forthcoming album The Great Blue Heron, which is scheduled to be released on September 14th. You can pre-order the album here.
Rich commented on the song:
“This is a song about a high profile Canadian divorce. I’m pretty stoked to be working with the folks from Everything Is Terrible as I’m a big fan of what they do. For years, Hawksley and I have been trying to work together, and when this opportunity came up, I pounced on it…when Hawksley suggested adding Kevin Breit to the mix, I knew we were in for an epic journey!”
Friendly Rich is a mad composer from Oakville, Canada. Mr. Rich composed background music for 3 seasons of MTV’s The Tom Green Show. He has now has teamed up with Everything is Terrible for a seriously wacked out video. “The Melon Sun” is a cross between sunbaked 50s garage rock, weirdo jazz, and epic beatnik postpunk. The videos mine a plethora of forgotten late night images to ramp up combustible nature of the track. Each image taking on more meaning with each viewing. All (curly) fried to perfection.
