Plants and Animals - Lightshow VIDEO
Here is the official video for 'Lightshow' by Plants and Animals, from the album, The End of That. 'Lightshow' is the first single from the bands 3rd album and offers some lovely vocals with a more powerful musical flair then the bands past catalog releases. I have been a big fan of these guys ever since their Parc Avenue debut back in 2008. One of my many Canadian Band Crushes.
The “Lightshow” video is a collaboration between producer Doug Karr and director Mitchell Hart who work on visual media together in New York. Hart explains the video as a commentary on contemporary media consumption: "There's so much information coming at us at any given moment ... as a result we're moving further away from appreciating the specifics of any given piece of media." Hart used the actual multi-track recordings to generate large data sets based on the audio files. Each track was analyzed through a series of code snippets and plug-ins to get what you see on screen. "A true combination of data visualization and cinematic production make this video unique."
Look for the band to play SLC, UT, May 16th at Kilby Court, and for full tour dates head over to the bands website.
