Lanu takes us through The Double Sunrise in special short documentary

Lance Ferguson has followed up his impressive Lanu album, The Double Sunrise, with a special documentary featurette that takes us through the making of the record! The record, out now, was released back in February to much acclaim and has become one of Lanu’s best releases to date.

In this 10 minute short, Ferguson retraces the inspirations that ultimately formed the music on The Double Sunrise, namely The Golden Age of aviation, music from the South Seas, 1950’s Exotica music and the presence and influence of his grandfather, Bill Wolfgramm.

Ferguson interviews NZ music icon Bill Sevesi (in what is the legend’s final ever interview before passing away) as part of the film, while also visiting The Museum of Transport & Technology in Auckland which houses one of Lanu’s biggest musical inspirations for the album.

“There’s an intensely personal story here that is part of my own family history. But much larger than that, I wanted to shine a light on these things to have some kind of record for everyone to share.” 
– Lanu
