With their new album ‘Time Skiffs’ out on 4th February via Domino, Animal Collective are sharing new track ‘Strung With Everything’.
Accompanied by a video directed by Abby Portner, Abby says, “Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper. I have been editing together symbols and colored static silhouettes that match the music’s feeling and rhythm. The videos are like pictographs that tell a story organically and simply. For the “Strung with Everything” video we wanted to continue with this process to match the style of the band’s live shows in a music video.”

Animal Collective - Time Skiffs
For some, this might be too tame. An album full of ‘Bluish’ rather than ‘Fireworks’. But for others, that means it’s the most accessible.
Their new album, ‘Time Skiffs’, lands this week.
