My musical interests are so vast, so don’t be shocked when I tell you that I listen to folk music & alternative folk bands. I grew up with a variety of musical influence, but the sounds of folk music always brings me back to the days of sitting outside, staring at the stars, and catching lightening bugs in the summer.
Folk music is amazing, but lately I’ve been enjoying the sounds of Bombay Bicycle Club. The London based collective has this awesome indie rock/folk sound, and their new music video “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep” is a simply beautiful animation that captures that childhood/folk vibe.
I’m pretty sure it must have taken hours upon hours to craft such a creative video, but the hours of work paid off; resulting in a music video that is whimsical. It’s nice to see animation that is whimsical and rugged in it’s design. The animation, set design, and costuming gives the video this nostalgic vibe. Some people aren’t fans of that rugged nostalgic/folk vibe, but I love it. So no complaints over here, “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep” is an amazing video.
Check out the visuals below.
