Jay Watson has shared a music video for ‘Gemini’, the first single taken from his new album as GUM.

Watson, who is also a touring band member of Tame Impala, released ‘Flash in the Pan’ last month, this  was his third solo project. The lo-fi video for album track ‘Gemini’ is filled with astrological signs and was inspired by 80s fantasy films, according to director Sam Kristofski.

“The clip was roughly styled around old children’s fantasy shows, like The Neverending Story,” explains Kristofski. “I love the idea of people blaming their behavior on their star sign too, so I think that was the whole section around someone crying, and in deep thought then cutting to the symbol. Also Jay fighting his star sign was based around that whole Gemini double personality thing, in combat with your other half, I just did the ’80s Karate Kid thing as it mixed in with the theme and tone of the clip.”

“We shot the whole thing in L.A. on left over 35mm and 16mm film stock from “CSI: Las Vegas,” which was a risk as the film was so old,” he added.
