UK Premiere: Pick A Piper Unveils ‘All Her Colours’ Video

Brad Weber’s illuminating new track gains puppetry and life in this Matt Yarrington-directed clip.

Pick A Piper, the project of Caribou member Brad Weber, is fast becoming one of 2013’s brightest, most unlikely discoveries. First there was ‘Lucid in Fjords’, featuring the Ruby Suns’ Ryan McPhun. Then came a debut album announcement and further glimpse of the LP in ‘All Her Colours’.

Turns out this forthcoming debut LP, which initially seemed like a spur-of-the-moment outburst, has been the product of the past few years, Weber’s touring schedule giving him short snippets of time in which to write the songs appearing on the album and shoot them off to collaborators who’d add their own ideas.

In this new clip for ‘All Her Colours’, director Matt Yarrington has actress Liz Kelly morphing from a curious onlooker into a hand-crafted doll, taking off on a colourful journey through dramatic, animated landscapes. Think ‘Life Of Pi’ meets a nativity play. Only a hundred times more worthy of that description.

DIY’s delighted to have the UK premiere of the video, with the people of MTV Hive sharing the clip in the US.
