Tom Tom Club celebra el aniversario de su album debut con el estreno global del video para “As Above So Below”

Tom Tom Club celebra 36 años de su album debut Tom Tom Club, que incluye los éxitos “Genius of Love” y “Wordy Rappinghood,” con un nuevo video para la canción “As Above So Below”. El video fue co-dirigido por Nico de Pouldu y Jim Swaffield y filmado en la playa en Bretagne, Francia. Mira el video aquí

Chris Frantz y Tina Weymouth hablan sobre la inspiración tras el video: 

“Tom Tom Club is celebrating thirty-six years! So when we met Nico de Pouldu in France, he suggested making a video. He put us in an extraordinary setting that Jim Swaffield helped weave into the tapestry you see here. The vision and narrative, humor and magic were further alchemized by Jim in Stamford, CT. The song Nico chose, “As Above So Below,” is a celebration of nature and our deep spiritual gratitude for life on this Earth. The saying “As Above So Below” means “as in heaven, so on earth.” It has come down to us from ancient wisdom older than any of the world’s existing religions. Its mystery as a prayer has been folded into all of them. We are grateful to everyone who participated – Merci Coralline! Merci Fanny! Mais surtout, merci Nico et Jim! “

Chris Frantz y Tina Weymouth formaron Tom Tom Club en 1981. Los dos se graduaron del Rhode Island School of Design y se mudaron a Nueva York donde fundaron Talking Heads con David Byrne y Jerry Harrison. En 1981, Talking Heads tomó un hiato después de 5 años de gira y 4 álbumes. Chris y Tina empezaron Tom Tom Club y firmaron un contrato con Chris Blackwell y Island Records.

Cuando el legendario productor y músico Lee “Scratch” Perry no llegó a una sesión de grabación que habían cuadrado en Bahamas, Blackwell dejó que Chris y Tina produjeran el album ellos mismos con el ingeniero jamaicano Steven Stanley.
