Still buzzing from winning triple j’s prestigious unearthed award and their set at this year’s Splendour in the Grass, chilled Byron Bay electronic five piece Tora have released a new music video for their single These Eyes, made entirely on their own.
Known for their DIY approach, the Byron locals filmed and recorded the music clip, which features a live session of the single, entirely their smartphones. Armed with six Nokia Lumia 930s, the band set up in a family member’s house in their hometown and spent a few hours capturing footage of the infectious track.
“We know what we want to achieve and instead of waiting for the perfect opportunity to present itself, we just have a go and learn on the job,” explains Tora’s Jo Lowenthal. “Shaun trained as an audio engineer and we were able to record a pretty authentic live clip in just a few hours”.
Tora will be playing Festival Of The Sun and the Mullumbimby Music Festival this year and will head out on their own headline tour this November and December. Their new EP Eat The Sun is being released on October 6th.
