In timely fashion Landshapes begin their UK tour next week and release their new single ‘Insomniacs Club’ (taken from 2013 album Rambutan) on Bella Union. The excellent single is also todays “Track of the Day” at GIGsoup.
The brilliantly eerie new video, directed by Ian Pons Jewell, contains incredible stop-frame animation cut together from the unnerving and darkly comic short film 1/4”.
The band said “We watched his short horror film “1/4 inch”, and thought it went incredibly well with the song, synching almost perfectly even before Ian took it in for a re-edit. We wanted to have a video that fitted with the jittery pace of Insomaniacs Club, and also something haunting that would render the watcher unable to sleep … this gruesome nightmare that follows a girl collecting sounds is perfect, the edit condensing the story and following the change in atmosphere through the song, they were made for each other!”
