From the Artist: “My original idea for this video was a Brady Bunch knock-off, where we featured a diverse cast of characters all singing the song to each other in different frames. I liked the fun feel of that idea, but then I realized it was going to be a technical challenge to produce and, more importantly, it didn’t present an obvious story to tell. I stayed with the headshot idea and started thinking of the Max Headroom from the 80s, and then it hit me: the video should be a newscast. I felt that the lyrics lent themselves well to being a news/weather script. “Holy, look! The sun shot a glare…” isn’t exactly typical weatherperson banter, but the idea worked and once I found it, the script came together super fast.”
‘I’ve Got Time For You’ is the first single from Yukon band The Dark Fruits’ debut album Authors of Affection set for release on March 1st, 2019. ‘I’ve Got Time For You’ is a fun, quirky gem of a pop song (think Weezer meets The Cars) and the video does its best to convey the upbeat vibe of the track with all all-star cast of characters from Whitehorse, including local journalist Tara McCarthy, reigning Sourdough Sam Daniel O’Shea and Gurdeep Pandher, Yukon’s Bhangra-dancing social media/viral video guru.
Although ‘I’ve Got Time For You’ is The Dark Fruits’ first official single from Authors of Affection, it’s not the first song to be released from the album. A video for the the album’s lead track ‘Stuck On You’ was shot for Music Yukon/Yukon Film Society’s 48 Hour Music Video Challenge last year, and it won the Audience Choice Award in September 2018.
‘I’ve Got Time For You’ will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services this Friday, January 11th. And look for The Dark Fruits on tour in support of the album this spring, details to be announced soon.
