    Becky & Joe: Tallest Heights

Becky & Joe's latest masterpiece, a Man-Ray inspired music video for Delicate Steve

Posted by Liv Siddall,

What is UP with Becky and Joe being so goddamn great all the time? First it’s a hand-crafted video for Tame Impala, then it’s the naughty puppets and now they’ve gone and triumphed again in this spectacular animation for Delicate Steve. Inspired by the likes of Man Ray, their technique of drawing, scratching and mark-making on actual super 8, 16, and 35mm film strips and acetate sheets is a nod to the animation of yore. Set to the dizzying, uplifting notes of the ever-popular Delicate Steve, this is a match made in heaven. More, Becky & Joe, we want more (in the meantime we’ll settle for the neat making-of below).
