In an age when music videos can be banged out in an afternoon it is always noteworthy when you see something different that treats the music video as a genuine form of artistic expression. This gorgeous video was incredibly labour intensive and took three years to complete.
From the band:
“This video was digitally shot and edited, and then printed out frame by frame on dot matrix printers, and re-scanned to achieve the final result. Conceptually the video was heavily inspired by the work of Canadian animation pioneer Norman McLaren – specifically his work Pas De Deux“.
Directed and edited by John Smith
Dancing and choreography by Alex Ashley.
Additional videography by Brendan McCarney.
