LOOPER (Stuart David and Karn David) release Farfisa Song as a 2-track single which includes a new acoustic version and have unveiled an new animated video, watch it via Out.com HERE.

The single is taken from Offgrid:Offline, Looper’s latest album, released in a limited edition of 500 on transparent blue vinyl on May 12, 2017. Pre-order HERE.

The “Farfisa Song” video was animated by Iain Gardner from Animation Garden and features Mustard & Ketchup, two gay badgers “who love each other very much” in their first outing to the world. Explains Gardener, “After seeing my last collaboration with Looper Oh, Skinny Legs screen at the Aesthetica Festival, I really wanted to do another one! I loved how Farfisa Song harked back to sounds from my youth, and consequently found inspiration from 1970s variety shows for the video.”

Looper, talking about the video, say “When Iain first told us about Mustard and Ketchup we loved the fact that they live in a world where there is no stigma attached to being gay, but where it is frowned upon to be a badger. Looper are extremely Pro-Badger, so we are proud to have worked with them on this video.”

Offgrid:Offline was released digitally only within the band’s 5CD box set, These Things. The vinyl is a limited edition of 500 and includes a download with three previously unreleased tracks, “Our Own Way Home,” (the original song that became the intro and outro on the album, and the melodic theme that occurs throughout), “Lucky Tui” and “The Back Roads.”

Looper emerged from Belle & Sebastian in 1997, when Stuart David (co-founder and bass player of B&S) and his wife Karn (an artist who directed the early B&S videos) collaborated for a show at Glasgow School of Art. A degree show fundraiser for Stuart’s sister Karla Black – who received a Turner Prize nomination in 2011 – the performance was a multi-media affair incorporating TVs, Super 8 film, 35mm slides and kinetic sculptures. Since nothing broke down and everyone clapped, they decided to keep doing it.

The band went on to release four albums via Sub Pop, Jeepster & Mute, with many of their tracks appearing in film, including “Mondo 77” which appeared in Cameron Crowe’s Vanilla Sky. Watch the recent video for that track HERE.

After a break from music for a few years, Karn went back to art school to study animation and Stuart turned his focus to studying literature and writing novels, a move to the remote countryside, post-study, prompted the creation of a new body of work.

Offgrid:Offline, the band’s fifth studio album, was the result – these new songs and stories, inspired by the return to peace and quiet and influenced by indie-folk music saw Looper conscious of the very different styles of previous albums. They set out to bring together elements of each into this new work. Structured like the first album, around a recurring melody, Offgrid:Offline is thematically centred on the spoken word piece which gives the album its title, drawing together the musical motifs and lyrical themes from throughout.
