It was early in the newborn millenium, and after the mainstream success of bands like Green Day and Blink-182, pop punk bands came crawling out the drains everywhere. Rufio was among those bands, but their sound really set them apart (and ablaze).
Sometimes we have trouble sleeping. That’s the way it is. Fortunately, Manchester band Marconi Union have the answer: they composed the most relaxing song in the world.
Look, editing video is time-consuming, even when you have all source material ready to use. Imagine gathering thousands of cell phone clips from concerts, syncing them up and building a one-hour-plus movie out of them. Oh, and add HQ audio and sync that as well, just for quality control. A group of fans did just that and the end result is amazing.
