Trust Fund has released the charming new video for current single ‘Dreams’, which can be viewed now on YouTube. The video was directed by Grace Denton, who sometimes plays drums and sings in Trust Fund, and depicts women she met while visiting the north, lip-syncing to the song to endearing effect.

‘Dreams’ is available now and has already had praise from the likes of NME, Stereogum, Noisey and more, as well as plays on BBC Radio 6Music. ‘Dreams’ features additional vocals from Alanna McArdle (Ides, formerly of Joanna Gruesome) and is out now via Turnstile Music. Purchase on iTunes.

Quote from the director Grace Denton:

When I was asked to make this video I decided to put the song into the charge of loads of amazing women who I met/saw in the north of England over a two week period in June. I asked each of them to lip sync to some or all of the song, and they became involved in a way that was comfortable for them.

I’m really interested in how a song can be altered when you experience it through a different person or situation. I first noticed this when I heard the Roy Orbison version of “I Drove All Night” which I had previously only heard by Cyndi Lauper. I want to see if the tone or meaning of the song changes when the gender of the person presenting it is different.

I wanted the character of each person to come through, so I didn’t direct them to lip sync in any particular way – I really love the mixture of responses. I’m so grateful to everyone involved for the result which is pretty joyful, but yet still very charmingly awkward. I think it complements the song, without drawing a direct theme from the lyrics.
