Watch Mitski’s gorgeous, painted video for ‘A Pearl’

The track is lifted from last year’s ‘Be A Cowboy’ LP.

Mitski released her ‘Be The Cowboy’ album mid-way through last year, and has now shared a new video for one of its standout tracks, ‘A Pearl’.

The new visual features 1,480 individually drawn and painted frames that see a woman being taken on a gorgeously illustrated journey.

The new clip follows recent (and equally great) Mitski videos for ‘Nobody’, in which she appears in a colourful, kitschy film setting, and the altogether more intense clip for ‘Geyser’, which sees her writhing around on the beach.

Mitski was today revealed as part of the huge line-up for this year’s End Of The Road Festival alongside Parquet Courts, Fontaines DC, Courtney Barnett, Mitski, Stella Donnelly and loads more.

Watch the new video for ‘A Pearl’ below.
