ALASKALASKA have shared a video for new song ‘Tough Love’.
The second single to be taken from their debut album ‘The Dots’ - due out this Friday (2nd May) - the video comes complete with animated hallucinogenic visuals from Callum Scott-Dyson.
Speaking about the track, the band’s Lucinda Duarte-Holman says: “‘Tough Love’ is a protest and a paradox. It is an invite to each individual listener to interpret however they like.”
Animator Callum added that he originally planned to mirror nature, reproduction and the human body in his visuals, but once the track’s lyrics embedded, he changed tack: “I didn’t think having abstract patterns and things would suffice. So something of a loose structure began to build, based on someone being captured and their thoughts and feelings being harvested into seeds. It went in more of a sci-fi based direction but all done in very loose, obscure ways.”
Watch the video below.
