Back in February, Dirty Projectors released their latest, self-titled album and now, almost ten months down the line, they’ve shared a new video for ‘Up In Hudson’.
It’s been created in collaboration with the film and animation studio Encyclopedia Pictura, and is set in a vibrant universe where everyone has quite a large nose. Aside from the prosthetic noses though, the clip tracks different people in various situations, weaving through their lives.
As reported by Pitchfork, the studio said: “Through four very different couples, the arc of a relationship is portrayed in its stages of growth, death, and rebirth. To unite our characters as we weave through their stories, we tried to present their vulnerabilities in a surreal way, right on the surface, in their faces”.
Earlier in the year we talked to Dirty Projectors all about their latest album. Catch up here.
