Sunship Balloon premiers ‘1000 Conversation’ Music Video in wake of album release.

Take a journey of heartbreak and lose with Daniel Haggis & Tord Øverland in a nostalgic indie bubble....

In a series of single releases; 1000 Conversation echoes the final of the trilogy of Sunship Balloon’s singles before their long waited album release Everywhen on the 18 th September. Sunship Balloon is the side project of Daniel Haggis and Tord Øverland of The Wombats.

Sunship Balloon rides the line between pop, psychedelic and nostalgic indie. 1000 Conversation follows the journey of lost friendships, lost love and the overwhelming regret people hold within themselves over the months and months. The song blends snappy pop influenced guitar and keys, with coming of age innocence. Taking influences from the 1975 and The Wombats. Sending you back to being in school, during your break listening to the classic 2007 indie bangers, like a cocoon of nostalgia. It’s hard to miss the psychedelic drums and synths melodically running through the whole track. Breaking the mould from other pop acts currently.

The video rides with sense of loss and wilfulness of exploration for your own questions muddled in a sea of lost ideas. Martha Brodacka directed the video blending all music videos from the trilogy; ‘A4 Life’ and ‘1224 Fantasia’ creating a running narrative throughout.

Taking notes from Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam and Father John Misty. With lyrics like; ‘The emptiness now stay there’ being portrayed with the image of a shapeless mushroom man walking in a lost dystopian world of abstract ideas.

Sunship Balloon is a one album side project from the boys in The Wombats. It’s clear they are etching their spaces in the alt-pop scene and want to stay, exploring new ideas and blending the boundaries of music genre. 

Don’t forget to check out their album Everywhen on the 18 th September.
