With its spiny dead trees and ghostly heads, Here We Go Magic’s video for “Fangela” looks like a black magic trick. It might also look aesthetically familiar considering it was created by Snejina Latev, the New York-based artist/filmmaker who concocted the visuals for Luke Temple & Brooklyn Co.’s first Here We Go Magic single “Tunnelvision.” This time we’re told she used charcoal animation, super-8 clips, sculptural pieces, various light effects, and stop-motion animation. More importantly, she made good use of “Fangela’s” lyrics (eyes, shadows on the wall, etc.) and the band’s winsome, weatherworn bedroom prettiness.
