Video: Islands – “Hallways”

Directed by Lex Halaby and Toben Seymour, the new Islands video for track “Hallways” might be my favorite video by anyone, ever. Let’s hear about the clip in the words of Halaby:

From the beginning we talked with Nick about making a video that’s equal parts funny and creepy. Nick he brought up the Max Fleischer cartoons of the 1930s as a source of inspiration. ‘The Skeleton Dance’ (1929) caught our eye and sparked the concept. We loved the idea of bringing an entire skeleton band to life. We also wanted an animated world that looked more like stop motion animation. The skeleton puppets were brought to life by four puppeteers; each one controlling the arms, legs, torso, and head. It was a team effort in every single shot.

Check out Islands’ “Hallways” below and look for A Sleep And An Forgetting out now.
