The Paper Kites recruited Bon Iver director Dan Huiting for the video for ‘Renegade’.
‘Renegade’ completes a trilogy of videos for the band’s latest album ‘twelvefour’. ‘twelvefour’ peaked at no 8 on the ARIA chart.
Singer Sam Bentley says, “It’s been really cool actually seeing these places on screen in the videos and people watching and asking us where they can find them – I think the idea was to create places that we would love to go to.”
The Paper Kites will start their Australian tour in Sydney in June. Bentley said, “We perform the music and behind us are a group of apartment windows. Through the windows, a series of stories play out in the lives of different people…we provide the soundtrack to a single night, the audience watching through the dim lit windows and seeing these stories progress, eventually fading to darkness.”
