Video Premiere: Luke Faas "Why Bother"

All it took for Norwegian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Luke Faas was to move to Oslo to meet people just like him.  Growing up in a town west of the capital, Faas found himself no longer feeling the pressure of not focusing on obtaining athletic accomplishments – a priority that the townspeople of Stabekk, Norway take great pride in.
Faas debut Apathy draws inspiration from the alienated-like feelings he experienced with classic soul and R&B sounds.  Along with producer Nicolay Tangen Svennæs (Bernhoft, Emilie Nicolas), Apathy is fused with modern electronics.  The debut single “Should’ve Seen It” has amassed over 200,000 streams online and was place in regular rotation on NRK P3, Norway’s most influential radio channel.
Today, Ghettoblaster is happy to premiere the video for Faas’ single “Why Bother”.  Here’s what Faas said about the video:
“I got the idea for the video the same week I recorded “Why Bother”, walking around The Vigeland Museum in Oslo. It’s packed with Gustav Vigeland’s beautiful sculptures that expresses the full array of human life, joys and struggles. The sculptures connected so well to how I felt writing the song, so I decided I had to do a video there.
Despite our plan to run around in the dark with a camera and a big light rig, possibly damaging the sculptures, the museum was super helpful and stoked about the project. Shooting it with the super skilled director Kristoffer Grindheim was so much fun, and we’re so happy we got the opportunity to unite different art disciplines in the video.”

Apathy comes out June 16 via Easy Records.
