Low Island have recently dropped a stunning animated music video for their single “Don’t Let The Light In.” The video is now available to watch on Youtube below;
The video sees a unique combination of risograph printing, 3D animation and artificial intelligence (GANS). It’s a video like no other. The creativity that has gone into it is just pure genius. It was directed by New York-based director and artist Danaé Gosset, with additional help from Danica Tan who helped with 3D design and animation, and character animation by Farrah Silberman. An extremely talented team who bought everyones vision to life.
When speaking of the video, Posada says;
‘We got in touch with Danaé after we’d seen the beautiful work she had done on Mitski’s video ‘A Pearl’ – we spoke about the themes of the song; of trying to capture and preserve moments in time, and also how the artwork for the track was inspired by Wim Wenders’ film for Pina Bausch – out of that was born the idea for the video. It’s been amazing learning about the process of animation and watching the video come together; we feel so lucky to have been able to work with Danaé and the wider team, and couldn’t be happier with the result.’
“Don’t Let The Light In” was recorded when Low Island was spending some time in France. The band let out a barn and isolated together for a good chunk of the year to allow them to focus on new material. As well as writing and recording new material, the band have been using their time to create their own record label Emotional Interference. With their own label under their belt, they have allowed themselves full control about what happens in their future.
We can’t wait to see what else Low Island have been working on whilst they were on their trip to France. We’re sure that we will be hearing more of what they got up to soon so be sure to follow their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for when those announcements come.
