“‘Catching Smoke’ is about chasing the feeling that’s impossible to catch,” the band’s Stu Mackenzie says. “You’ll never get your hands on it, but you’re gonna try anyway…”
Director Danny Cohen adds of the video, “Here’s a clip that might feel like the past, or the future, maybe both, the present? It’s set wherever you want it to be, whenever too, in a time that’s everyone’s. It’s a story of a fleeting fleet, straying the course to inhabit their inner instinctual insect, I think. Or maybe it’s precisely what it is, Sgt. Pepper’s Bug’s Life Matrix Band but more fun.”
