Meadowlark unveil Trump inspired video ahead of Leeds show
Alt pop duo Meadowlark have shared a striking video for new single '˜Sunlight' ahead of their tour, which includes a headline appearance at The Wardrobe, in Leeds on Sunday, October 1.
The track is the latest to be lifted from the Bristol based boy-girl duo’s debut album ‘Postcards’ which is out now on AllPoints.
The ‘Sunlight’ video was directed by Meadowlark’s own Dan Broadley who alongside playing in the band has produced videos for the likes of Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis and Mallory Knox, as well as the majority of Meadowlark’s catalogue.
Featuring two men in Y-fronts and Donald Trump masks making out, the video is provocative but rather than aimlessly smearing America or its president, the video is a satirical look at prejudice.
Dan himself explains further: “Sunlight is probably one of Meadowlark’s biggest sounding songs and with that I wanted to create a big visual statement for it.
“A lot of our conversations recently have been swaying towards political discussion and it’s hard not to bring up the USA during them.
“I have no idea why I thought up the idea I did, it just came to me, possibly because of my pent up frustration with all that’s going on over there. Once it was in my head I couldn’t think of anything else to go with the song (believe me, I tried).”

Since the release of ‘Postcards’ back in June, Meadowlark have had a busy summer of UK festivals and also teamed up with producer EMBRZ on his recent single ‘Heartlines’.
