[Hot Video Alert] Graffiti6 – Stare Into The Sun

    Graffiti6 Stare Into The Sun

    Before passing on the VEVO LIFT torch to the lovely and talented Rita Ora, UK indie pop duo (and Music Is My King Size Bed favorite) Graffiti6 released yet another visual masterpiece, this time for their new U.S. single, “Stare Into The Sun.”  The new video was directed by long-time Graffiti6 collaborator Jimi Crayon, the creative force behind the band and the man responsible for ALL of the band’s colorful artwork, logos and stunning visuals.

    To commemorate the release of the single, Graffiti6 has partnered with Blippar – “the world’s leading image-recognition/augmented-reality app,” becoming one of the first bands to offer an interactive augmented reality t-shirt (which you can see lead singer Jamie Scott wearing in the video BELOW).  By downloading the free Blippar app and holding your smart phone up in blippar-mode to the t-shirt, Jimi Crayon‘s iconic artwork jumps to life with creative assets, opportunities to watch the new vid, and even for fans to put THEMSELVES in the t-shirt. AWESOME! Technology today, eh?  Order your very own interactive Graffiti6 T-shirt here: www.merchdirect.com/graffiti6. Download the Blippar app and try it out using the image of T-shirt BELOW!

    Stare Into The Sun” is the second official U.S. single taken from Graffiti6‘s breakthrough debut album, Colours, which came out back in January.  After only a few weeks of radio airplay, the song moved into the top 30 at AAA radio last week which is AWESOME!  The single serves as the followup to the band’s debut single (and AAA top 5 hit) “Free,” which is currently climbing the charts at the Hot AC format where it broke into the Top 25 last week.  The “Free” video currently has over 2 million views!
