Everyone loves fun.—duh—but now we're getting to know the band's guitarist Jack Antonoff a little better with his solo project Bleachers. With first single "I Wanna Get Better" and its Lena Dunham-directed video (below) showing major signs of promise, we're having Bleachers take over Fuse's channel: We'll be playing Bleachers videos and exclusive interviews all this week.
"One thing a lot of people don't know about fun. is where we all came from," says Antonoff of the project's origins. "[Nate Ruess, Andrew Dost and I] had started our own bands, we were on tours and we all met. There was a whole ecosystem to us before we started the band. So years later when I started Bleachers, it wasn't like this moment of, 'Hey guys, I'm going to do a solo record.' I've always done that.
"You want everyone in your creative environment to be very creative in all these other places because when you come together you're even more creative."
In the interview above, find out more about the guitarist/singer's mindset behind Bleachers, what it was like having his Girls star GF direct his debut video and why you'll soon see improv skits starring him and Parks and Recreation star Retta. Tune in to Fuse all week to see even more.
