Each year Triple J Unearthed in conjunction with NIDA select five of the most promising new artists from across the country to have a professional video clip directed for one of their tracks. This year Phatchance’s song Inkstains – a jam which has already proven popular on Triple J and community radio networks across the country – was one of those tracks chosen.
The video clip is directed by Stephen Nicolazzo and features cameos from Coptic Soldier, Johnny Utah and Smiles Again (Mind Over Matter). Quite frankly it’s messy, colourful and weird (probably in a good way). Phatchance is currently on the road with fellow I Forget, Sorry! members Coptic Soldier & Johnny Utah as part of the I Forget, Sorry! 2010 National Tour.
As luck would have it the release of the new video clip (currently doing the rounds on RAGE) coincides with the beginning of the tour, which will take the artists on more than 15 dates across the country, beginning in QLD and ending in WA in early December.
