tUnE-yArDs‘ “Water Fountain” is a combination of a myriad of influences combined and spliced together in Merril Garbus’ signature, unique style. Director Joel Kefali brings Garbus’ sonic texture to life in this wacky video that stands as an homage to the zaney world of children’s television. With an eclectic array of inspirations and nods the video watches like a Pee-Wee Herman episode with sketches straight from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Make sure you stick around until the end of the video for a special word from Franklin the Scientist and some insights about the potato and the cosmos!
“Water Fountain” comes off of tUnE-yArDs’ upcoming album, Nikki Nack, set to release the week of May 5th via 4AD.
