Brisbane jangle pop merchants Babaganouj certainly were busy in 2016, recording three EPs that showcase their warm, ever-evolving sound.

The third of these creations, ‘Clarity Restored’, will be out in February, but until then you can enjoy lead single ‘Star’ – a song which echoes great Australian pop bands from the ’90s like The Hummingbirds and The Clouds.

We are premiering the clip below, which inter-cuts footage of the band playing with the exploits of a cute cardboard box-headed character. The video was created by young director Thomas Evans.

“We ended up fortuitously meeting with Thomas Evans, a young YouTube genius who usually makes stop motion videos with LEGO”, the band explains “Look him up – he has awards! He had a uni project to do and we had a video to make – that’s where magic happens! We got together one day at his university down the coast and did stuff in front of a camera for a while. A computer glitch destroyed most of the original footage but through his hard work completed the Star video clip: redux.”
