It's indie pop, but with a space-bound ginger-bearded astronaut...

Banfi are riding the crest of a wave.

The band's new release 'The Jack Powell EP' is out now, with the effervescent three-piece matching gilded indie pop against lyrics that cut a little deeper.

Standout track 'Never Really Cared' gains the video treatment, with director Dylan Holmes Williams seizing on the band's search for empathy in an increasingly self-motivated world.

Things to watch out for: a jilted lover, and an astronaut ready to blast off into space. Yes, really... and it works!

Director Dylan Holmes Williams said: "'Never Really Cared' has got a brilliant and unique tone; somehow uplifting, depressing and funny all at the same time. I wanted to make a video that mirrored that. In the end, I didn’t have to do too much to build out the concept as there’s already a lot of caustic humour in the lyrics. I just added a cute dog and a ginger-bearded astronaut and let the music do the work."

Tune in now.
