New Rubblebucket song out today, accompanied by one of our favorite animated videos in a really long time. Available in full here via Apple Music, the video was directed by Amanda Bonaiuto, and wrestles with concepts both big and small. “The idea behind the music video for ‘Annihilation Song’ began with the feeling of being in control and learning to trust yourself,” says Bonaiuto. “The plot was initially inspired by a negative experience with a ride share, and after fleshing out the idea it broadened into being more generally about situations where women are forced to relinquish control. I wanted to create a narrative where the protagonist regains or discovers control that she didn’t think she had; control that she thought belonged to technology, two mind control pelicans, and nature itself.”
The album from which it came, Sun Machine, will be out oh so soon. Pre-order your copy before its 8/24 release date over in the GJ shop. And then head to the tour section to check out the new dates freshly announced for later this year.
