David Knight - 22nd Mar 2017

A collaboration between Lewis Rose (who won a Newcomer MVA last year for his hilarious video for Beardyman's Mountainside) and illustrator and longtime Super Furry Animals collaborator Pete Fowler for Joe Goddard combines live action and animation to capture a proper trip in the back of a cab.

As with the hapless couple in Mountainside, our protagonist is under the benign influence of his clubnight drugs, which adds streaks of colour to his early morning taxi ride through London. Then he slips into a full-on magic carpet ride with Fowler's delightuflly psychedelic visuals taking over at the point that the track switches into the 70s soul-funk vibes of We’re On Our Way Home by Brainstorm - the song's main sample.
