Speaking on the inspiration for the video, Eyedress says, “‘No Fun’ is about being sick of where you’re from. For the video I burnt my face off and went skating near the docks in the oldest part of Manila with my homies Julius Valledor and Joaquin Dimayuga.”

“No Fun” is the lead single from Eyedress’ new album, Sensitive G, that’s arriving on Nov. 16 via Lex Records.
