M+N Video Premiere: Jonti
Remember when Jonti Danilewitz changed his moniker from Danimals to Djanimals to stave off potential legal action from a yoghurt company? Now, he’s just Jonti and he’s releasing his debut album Twirligig through Mistletone/Inertia locally and Stones Throw in the US in October. In the meantime, you can bliss out to the clip for first single ‘Firework Spraying Moon’, which will be released digitally on August 9.
Directed by Henry DeMaio (Dam Funk, Mayer Hawthorne), the clip – Jonti’s first – was shot in LA. “Underwater and upside-down monkey bar shots were fun as hell,” he says. “I chose this song as first single because I wanted a simple song that represented me in my element - creating music for the simple joy and satisfaction of creating it. No ego, no loud car crashes. Yet.”
