Glass Animals ft. Denzel Curry 'Tokyo Drifting' by rubberband.
Glass Animals' first new music in three years has inspired a superb video by directing duo rubberband, where 90's fighter-video-games meets stop motion animation and long film exposures to create a dropdead gorgeous visual aesthetic.
Drawing inspiration from comic books, anime and console games, Tokyo Drifting is a nostalgia-drenched reimagining of the slaying of the Minotaur. The eclectic influences behind the making of the track with guest artist Denzel Curry have informed the ironic retrofuturistic underground fight club setting, and rubberband's dazzlingly inventive visual approach to the subject. It's mesmerizing.
However long you plan to shoot stop motion, we’d recommend making it longer.
"We had a lot of fun taking outdated processes (everything from 16mm long exposure stop-animation to step printing) and blending them together in a relatively post-heavy way.
"There’s a lot of VFX in the video that you wouldn’t notice outright. We sort of loved the idea of taking what most people would consider laughably old school and bringing it to life with people who are used to working with slick, CG-heavy imagery.
"We just wanted to make something that translated all these influences and references into something original. And we feel pretty good about where we landed. However long you plan to shoot stop motion, we’d recommend making it longer."
