Head And Heart video

In addition to animating his own videos, Calgary creative genius Chad VanGaalen sometimes does visuals for his Sub Pop labelmates. We’ve seen him produce rad clips for J Mascis and METZ, and now he’s made some unnervingly beautiful nature scenes for the Head And The Heart’s “Summertime.” The song, for an excellent synth-inflected pop tune from 2013′s Let’s Be Still, marks violinist and backup singer Charity Rose Thielen’s first go-round on lead vocals with the band. Her influence is a big reason why “Summertime” became such a refreshing departure for a band that typically trades in roots-rock. Even without VanGaalen’s wild animations, it would hit like a flash of color. Watch below.
