Behind the Video: fun.'s "Some Nights" music video
Have you been singing along to fun.'s hit track "Some Nights" for months on end, not really knowing what the catchy track's all about? The fun. lads tell us.
When the New York City trio visited Australia, they took some time out of their busy schedule to explain what "Some Nights" means to them.
"From night to night any person can be very compassionate, a big jerk, very selfish... anyone can be a number of different things depending on who they're with," Andrew Dost explains.
"This song is about being OK with not necessarily knowing... because I think part of what makes us human is that fact that we can be different people from night to night. "Some Nights" is about not knowing who you really are from night to night."
Jack Antonoff says the inspiration for the clip came directly from the intensity of the track.
"(The video) really is the concept of war, obviously being massive... but to take that a step further (to) the moment right before battle that hones in on why you're going to war," he says.
"In a song that chants over and over 'What do I stand for'... what an amazing idea for a video, to have a video where it's almost the exact opposite; you know exactly what you stand for. The video is the moment before the battle."
"Some Nights" was released as the second single from the indie pop band's sophomore album, of the same name.
The track topped Aussie iTunes and ARIA charts, achieving platinum-selling status in Oz.
