Technology + Teamwork, the duo comprising Sarah Jones and Anthony Silvester, recently released their debut album We Used To Be Friends via Good Way Records.
Today, they share a brand new music video directed by Simon Owens (Alexis Taylor, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Caribou, Anna Meredith). Watch the video HERE.
“I repeatedly slapped my thigh during a waking dream hearing Technology + Teamwork ‘We Used To Be Friends” (a mosquito wouldn’t leave me alone whilst at the same time a delivery bike went past my bedroom window playing the tune loud). It would not leave my brain.
“Gushing with praise, I sought immediate contact and the band sent me their brilliant album containing “You Saw Something In me” and I was hooked. What’s not to like about a track that sounds like Belgian techno featuring a pitched down ‘Taylor Dayne’ singing what could be a ‘Hall and Oats’ song on Eurovision? I had to make a video for this tune. But what? Two bin bags, one in love with another, no matter what, run over and hospitalised, lip-syncing. Natch.” – Simon Owens, director
“The song is about that rush you get when someone believes in you. We wrote it in a mouldy basement under a carpet shop opposite Oxfam, which was our studio for 2 years. We would often have each other in hysterics while writing it. Simon approached us with the idea of making a video about two, discarded bin bags falling in love. We couldn’t have been happier.” – Anthony Silvester
