- Bio: What a stellar year 2010 has been for Everything Everything. From 5 star album reviews to sell out shows up and down the country to a performance on Later…it’s been everything they’d ever envisaged and some.
But it’s not likely to stop there as the year draws to a close, not only are they staging two sold out shows with the RNCM in December (further details below), they are kicking off 2011 with serious intent by releasing their massive song ‘Photoshop Handsome’ in January.
The video for the single is completely brilliant. 50 animators were given a few frames of greenscreen footage of the band to animate. They then Photoshopped the band members and background in whichever way they wanted. The result is eye popping (quite literally in places).
“Our new single Photoshop Handsome looks at the world of digital image manipulation and computer game re-incarnation. What would it feel like to come back to life as one of the 'perfected', false, immortal beings that adorn magazine covers, adverts and games?
We took the idea of photoshopping and digital re-imagining of the self to its most extreme conclusion with our new video. We laid out loose guidelines for a huge number of creative digital artists and let them run free with their imaginations, each editing literally only a few seconds of video in total. The result is a very colourful and diverse explosion of ideas, the image of ourselves re-imagined hundreds of times in 3 minutes. We hope to open the imagination and raise some thoughts about what it means to change our perceptions of ourselves to the extent we do.” Jonathan Everything
Everything Everything will perform their exceptional debut album ‘Man Alive’ in its entirety in both Manchester and London. The record has been specially re-arranged and scored by the band and arrangers David Coyle and Ben Cottrell for a 13 piece classical ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music. (less)
