A song for the summer: Fiver and the Atlantic School Of Spontaneous Composition present June Like A Bug from the Fiver with The Atlantic School Of Spontaneous Composition LP/CD/Digital album. Wild in the details and the weeds. A vision of life. Directed by Simone Schmidt.
“This song is a poem about the transition into summer time,
how it can be hard to match and keep up with the world in full bloom.”
July Go Easy.
“There was no place to stay I had to be on my way
And I cursed every word for reading wrong
I owe a little thanks to the kid on the train
He could tell I was aching and he gave me his seat”
Enter a fluid, interconnected, ever-metamophosizing world in this spectacularly animated video for “Jr Wreck” from Fiver with The Atlantic School Of Spontaneous Composition by director Anne Douris. It’s a lush and beautiful thing.
