The Viennese folk-rock band “Blinded by Stardust” around songwriter Lukas Cioni is no ordinary band. In their endeavor to combine several art forms, they create film and art performances in addition to music. For their music videos they were awarded the Austrian International Film Award and nominated for international prizes. With Follow the Sun, they want to put an end to the dreary mood of everyday life and add color to life again.

The music video was realized in September 2018, with Lauren Klocker as director and DOP. The whole thing was shot in a studio of an old Viennese factory building. The video shows a painter painting a large canvas, the canvas is to represent the band. The result is a color frenzy of the artist, who covers the canvas and thus also the band more and more with color. “Blinded by Stardust becomes a painted work of art,” Cioni says of the video.
