Video of the Moment #2822: IAN SWEET

By on Thursday, 12th April 2018 at 6:00 pm

Prior to their showcasing at SXSW 2017, American trio IAN SWEET (confusingly, not a single man named Ian Sweet at all) released their debut album. ‘Shapeshifter’ was released to the wild in 2016 through Hardly Art. While we’re nearly 2 years out from the official release, the band led by Jillian Medford have finally gotten around to releasing a promo video for the title track. The video could be construed as a vanity moment for Medford, as it stars Medford’s very own singing head, plus various, non sequitur pastel-coloured animations. Is this her Ziggy Stardust moment? The music is certainly wigged out. Watch the video for ‘Shapeshifter’ below. For more on IAN SWEET here on TGTF, use this link.


(SXSW 2017 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2260: IAN SWEET

By on Wednesday, 11th January 2017 at 6:00 pm

Not a man with such a name, IAN SWEET are actually a trio led by Jillian Medford. Medford used to travel and perform as a solo singer/songwriter until she hooked up with bassist Damien Scalise and drummer Tim Cheney to form their band as it is today. Last year, they released ‘Shapeshifter’, now available from Hardly Art. Ahead of their scheduled appearance at SXSW 2017 in March, they’ve released an amusing video for ‘Slime Time Live’. As one might expect for a band totally willing to laugh at themselves, the accompanying promo video includes copious amounts of the green stuff. Watch the video below. Stay tuned for more preview coverage of SXSW 2017 in the coming weeks and lead-up to the big event in Austin.
