IDLES Team with Michel Gondry for "Model Village" Video
Watch the wild animated clip for the 'Ultra Mono' track now
Published Aug 11, 2020Ahead of unleashing new album Ultra Mono next month, IDLES have rolled out a new video for album cut "Model Village."
The animated visuals arrive courtesy of director Michel Gondry, who co-directed the clip alongside brother Olivier Gondry. You can take in the colourful chaos below.
As Michel told WePresent, "Olivier [Gondry] and I were excited to work on this because we use completely opposite techniques. I work with a primitive system of cutting paper and moving it under the lens frame by frame. Olivier then transforms it by morphing, warping and CGI.... Basically, in the first part we try to illustrate the lyrics as close as possible, to create the world, and then in the second half.... they go to the moon."
Ultra Mono arrives September 25 through Partisan Records, and follows IDLES' 2018 LP Joy As an Act of Resistance.
