Of Montreal have shared a new video for their song ‘Last Rites at the Jane Hotel’. The clip was created using stop motion animation and accompanies a track first unveiled on the band’s most recent album, ‘Aureate Gloom’. Click below to watch.
In a statement, the video’s lead animator Matthew Cooper talked about creating the piece. “The tone of the song’s lyrics are quite dark,” said Cooper, “but the music has this technicolor and upbeat kind of tone to it so I think that’s what I tried to do with the video. There’s a lot of morbid elements. I tried to represent those very vivid, bubblegum sort of colour schemes.”
