Watch Courtney Barnett’s Animated Music Video for ‘Dead Fox’
Already considered one of the best albums to hit the streets in 2015, Courtney Barnett is still celebrating the release of her debut full-length, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. Today (May 11), she shared her latest music video to emerge from the disc; check out the intriguing "Dead Fox" up above.
“Dead Fox” was animated and directed by Rory Kerr and Paul Ruttledg, and follows a fox who encounters, well, a bit of trouble on the road.
“We liked how politically loaded and conversation the lyrics are,” the animators said in a statement released with the video. “We wanted the animation to have a stylistic and organic look, hence most of the drawings were done on paper rather than digitally.”
They go on, “To further compliment the lyrics, we thought it would be funny to have the animals in the video look as cynical as possible, as if they’d had enough with how humans are treating them.”
(And in case you were wondering, yes, Barnett makes a brief appearance near the end of the video.)
You can pick up Barnett's new album here, and make sure to check out her full tour itinerary at her official website -- she has a few shows scheduled in Australia followed by an extensive North American run, including a three-night stint at New York City's Bowery Ballroom.
