When most people hear “four-piece band from Memphis,” laptops and synthesizers aren’t the first instruments that come to mind. Yet Tennessee natives Fast Planet manage to skillfully channel indie-electronic rhythms through melancholy but endearing lyrical themes reminiscent of The Postal Service or The Notiwst. In support of their debut LP Jes, the band released the music video for “Lost”, an album standout and recent Audience Award Winner at the Live From Memphis Music Video Showcase.
You know the old adage: If at first you dont succeed, try try again.” The video shows that Fast Planet lives and almost dies by that rule. Check out the deservedly award-winning video below.
Jes is out now via the band’s Bandcamp page.
