Recently Glass Animals blessed our ears with the release of their collaboration with Denzel Curry for ‘Tokyo Drift’ and to keep us thriving to our full potential, they also recently released the accompanying video!
Talking about the inspiration behind the music video director, Rubberband says, “We were inspired by a variety of things: the handmade nature of Iza Genzken’s collage work, 90’s video games, 80’s comic books. We sort of filtered all this through the lens of the myth of the Minotaur. The video was shot in Yonkers at an abandoned Catholic school (I’m sure the church would be thrilled). We really wish the toilets had worked… Mostly, we just wanted to make something that felt different. Post was a lot like playing jazz, we experimented with a wide variety of different animation techniques and titling. In the end, Dave put a lot of trust in us and we are very grateful for that.”
‘Tokyo Drifting’ as a track when paired with the delivery of the cinematic style of the music video is given two lives. As a song on its own, it has beautiful and captivating sentiments. Once you add the video into the mix, its second life takes you on the journey of what would be one heck of an amazing video game, proving that the concept Rubberband wanted works. This music video gives serious retro feels, but with a modern twist that keeps your eyes glued to the screen!
