There's a charming kind of longing that permeates each single from Young Galaxy's latest record, Ultramarine. For 'Sleewalk With Me', the very talented Brazilian designer and director Fabricio Lima creates an animated video that perfectly visualises the playful, dreamy sound of Young Galaxy.
While their last video, the incredible VFX-laden 'New Summer' by Ivan Grbovic took that charm and went in the opposite direction, with a film that translated the slow, yearning song into a portrait of catastrophe, 'Sleepwalk With Me' is more like watching the wondrous imagination of a little kid drifting off to sleep. You easily forget that you're actually watching images of soldiers and tanks and bombs dropping. The hand-drawn look is a pure delight to watch and radiates this overwhelming feeling of innocence without feeling saccharine; it's almost a strange thing to experience. The ying to Rihanna's yang.
