Pure Assassins: ‘Silent Movie Style’ video
Like with the track Questions itself, when coming up with a video concept we wanted to play with the idea of there not always being answers to life’s Questions. We wanted the video to have a comedy angle to it, so the whole thing didn’t become too serious and was fun to make. We talked about using a paper cootie catcher/chatterbox/fortune teller toy but settled on the Magic 8 Ball as the main focus of the story. We all love 30s silent movies, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd etc. and felt it was a theme we could pull off with the tools we had available.

SOFY – btw
In Hawaiian culture, there is the phrase kani ka pila – the invitation to jam together in your backyard. Its essence is rooted to the Hawaiian spirit itself: the way that music and its easy sense of community are irrevocably bound together. There might be two or three guitars, a scattering of ukuleles, a homemade washtub pakini bass, and someone on spoons to hold down the rhythm – a spontaneous, freeform blend of instruments until the small hours of the morning. This is the energy Hawaiian-born singer-songwriter Eli Smart seeks to capture in his second EP, Aloha Soul.
