Mew Unleash Animated Zoo Animals in the Video for ‘The Night Believer’
This is actually the second video for the +- track; the first clip featured 1,000 Mew fans from all around the world. This one instead boasts colorful stop-motion animation depicting zoo animals in a car race against a giant purple robot. The video was produced by Kestrel Media; directed by Lianne Piece, who also worked on the Pixies’ "Bagboy" video; and animated by Will Hodge. Check it out above.
