Duncan and Selwyn Walsh are the British brothers behind the whimsical indie pop band The Watanabes, who have lived in Tokyo for several years, spreading their British charm. With their just released EP titled, Spoiled And Nostalgic, is an equally charming video for Over Romantic.
Shot in Ueno, Odaiba, and Yoyogi Park with Japanese actress Shuna Iijima, director David Allen follows the brothers singing and playing guitar, while Duncan wanders without direction and with eyes on the ground. At Least until he meets Iijima and maybe falls in love a little too soon, followed with a disaster. In the midst of the cute visuals is a clear message that will resonate with each of us.
Watch Over Romantic below, and if you’re reading this from Japan – catch The Watanabes at one of many gigs.
