Vancouver based pop duo, Fionn, are back with a euphoric new single and music video titled “Picnic On The Moon”.
The video starts off with the duo sitting in a futuristic living room drenched monochrome as they watch TV, the only source of color in their lives that can be seen. Suddenly, the people on the TV begin reaching out to them and end up transporting themselves out of the screen bringing an explosion of color with them.
Then comes the endless green screen fun with shots of the full band flying through the stars in space playing their instruments and having a great time. Eventually, Fionn gets to have their titular picnic with their spaced-out new friends as they dig into wildly colorful, sugary feast. As the sugar and friendship induced high takes over, they, dance and sway to the music before finally parting ways. The duo gets transported back to their living room, but color has been restored and the souvenirs they return with promise more good times to come.
The campiness of the whole experience is a lot of fun and harkens to old school science fiction movies, but with a pop music twist that fans of Marina and the Diamonds (aka Marina Diamondis) would absolutely love.
“Picnic On The Moon” is available on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.
