A music video like never before from dream-team Wild Nothing and Eric Shaw

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Oooh we all love a good collab don’t we and even better when it comes in the form of dreamy band Wild Nothing and psychedelic artist Eric Shaw. In this trippy, block colour animation taking you into a strange world that is some kind of cross between 1980s abstract paintings and the what it would look like to teleport, Eric Shaw’s work totally comes to life, soundtracked by Wild Nothing’s beautiful new track A Dancing Shell. To accompany this absolute corker of a music video is some album artwork that’s totally flying the flag for diehard vinyl and CD buyers everywhere, which is at once comforting and genuinely exciting.
