When you’ve got the option of putting Jessie Ware in your video, I can’t imagine any reason why you’d go with an animated video instead, but that’s what Julio Bashmore did. Bashmore, who’s produced for Ware in the past, recruited Ware to guest on “Peppermint,” his great new panting house single. And the video, from director Noah Harris, is a lot of fun; it’s a psychedelic stop-motion-animated head trip with screaming skulls and clapping babies and dogs repeatedly jumping through hoops. Still: No Jessie Ware. Watch it below.
Bashmore will release his debut album later this year on his own Broadwalk label.
