Walking The Dog

Having just completed a tour with the insanely massive Paramore, playing UK arenas, fun. have just released their latest single over here. And quite awesome it is too. ‘Walking The Dog’ showcases just what talents this group of musicians are. The trio have crafted a pop tune which combines pure simple melodies with unique intricacies of instrumentation which make fun. absolutely unique. Although they are for all intents and purposes, a pop act, fun. have the potential to appeal to indie kids with their hint of Vampire Weekend-ness and they have also found fans in the rock world with their Paramore association.

Comprising members of The Format, Anathallo and Steel Train, there’s a real melting pot of influences present on this track and you can tell that this is a band open to all influences even if they don’t wear ALL of those influences on their sleeve. As well as being massive Beatles fans, they’re actually pretty into hip-hop. Not totally what you’d expect after watching the below video! The video for ‘Walking The Dog’ certainly lives up to the band’s name as they are all covered in brightly-coloured paint and dancing around with glee.
