The Leisure Society’s fantastically fun ‘Fight For Everyone’ video

'Fight For Everyone' Music Promo

'Fight For Everyone' Music Promo

This is a delightful little animated promo for The Leisure Society’s new single “Fight For Everyone” which is animated by the British animation studio Persistent Peril. The video shows the creation of a new planet by a giant blue hand but unfortunately things don’t go quite according to plan as chaos unfolds when evolution steps in. It’s a lot of fun, featuring great colors and a lot of playful whimsy.

The track is taken from the bands third album Alone Aboard The Ark which comes out on April 01st on Full Time Hobby.

It’s the ideal place to let your shaver drain-off or let your soap stay dry. Its combination of wood and ceramic strikes a perfect balance and I’d happily have one of these take pride and place in my bathroom.

While searching around online I came across these fantastic images taken by Icelandic photographer Helga Laufey Guðmundsdóttir.
