WATCH: Kiran Leonard shares video for ‘Pink Fruit’

Following the success of four sold out shows last week, Gigslutz ‘One To Watch in 2016’ Kiran Leonard has now shared a new video to his stupendous latest single ‘Pink Fruit’.

Usually a sixteen minute blissful cacophony of sound, ‘Pink Fruit’ has been cut down to a more conventional four and a half minutes for the video, but remains an angst driven, yet dreamily euphoric, creation. Filled with raucous grunge-inspired riffs and intense emotion, it is a must listen even in its cut-down form.

Of the video, 20 year old Leonard says:

The more perceptive of those watching will notice that, while the song describes a squid sat in the woman’s hollowed out abdomen, the video features an octopus, entering through the bedroom door to sneak up on the male protagonist. 

This is no minor detail: here, its appearance signifies the universal over the self-perceived and unhealthily self-internalised. Scrutinising the scrutiniser. So let it out the aquarium. Reassessing its presence helps build our confidence and teaches us not to judge others.
