Published Oct 22, 2020Born Ruffians recently gave us their new album SQUEEZE, and now they have treated its Hannah Georgas-featuring "Waylaid" to a trippy new animated video.
As frontman Luke Lalonde puts it, the video invites you to "enter into the analog dream world, first person experience of space time. Where eras and nanoseconds coalesce, folding eternally outward into golden memories."
The video was directed by Martin Macpherson, who also did all the animation for the clip.
"I wanted to explore this idea of a dreaming person as they subconsciously navigate various ways to define a romantic relationship and all that comes with it," Macpherson explained in a statement. "As they float through visions of nostalgia, fantasy and impermanence they are ultimately presented with ideas that make a clear definition impossible but provides a feeling of cautious optimism, regardless of how dark things may seem."
Get lost in the dream world of "Waylaid" down below.
