New Zealand’s Tom Lark has debuted their video for ‘Go Get a Job’ on VEVO. The video, directed by Sam Kristofski (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Miami Horror), depicts a 70’s foreign action flick, complete with high-speed car chase along the beach. The video was filmed in Auckland and around other areas of New Zealand, and follows their recently released ‘Hipsteranity‘ video. ‘Go Get A Job’ is the first single off of Tom Lark’s debut record anticipated for 2014.
Lark’s solo career came to be after the devastating Christchurch earthquakes. As half the city closed and his regular band’s practice space became rubble, he started working with a temperamental laptop and broken-stringed guitar. Having little more than a sunlight-starved bedroom for inspiration he released the TOM LARK EP, which caught the ears of Australian producer Berkfinger (Art vs Science, Architecture in Helsinki), who’s working with him on 2014 album debut. The first single, ‘Go Get A Job,’ is written about these events, as well as the conflicting feelings of freedom and frustration associated with being unemployed.
Until Lark comes back across the pond to the US to perform, you can get a great glimpse of their live performance with a session from the New Zealand Herald’s Sundae Sessions. This 30 minute performance at York Street Studios features the full band performing, concluding with a performance of ‘Hipsteranity,’ that you can watch HERE.
