We're excited about the upcoming MTV VMAs where Fun. is nominated in the Best New Artist category. MTV Buzzworthy has been posting 'inspirational illustrations' of the nominees hit songs. Musician/Artist Sherri DuPree-Bemis of the band Eisley re-imagined 'We Are Young' by Fun. 'into a charmingly devilish, incredible inky affair.'
"The song is obviously about flawed people being able to get down and have a good time and embrace youth and youthful energy. It's about a kind of eternal moment. To me, a bunch of crazy, exuberant creatures having a sort of Halloween-esque party together, enjoying the thrill of the moment despite their numerous inadequacies, best expressed the vibe of Fun.'s song. I wanted the picture to have an energetic feeling to it as well, given that the song is a teenage anthem of sorts." - Sherri DuPree-Bemis
What do you think of Sherri's interpretation?
