Erlend Øye has released a video for “Rainman,” off the upcoming album Legao. This is Øye’s first solo project since 2003’s Unrest. (He was supposed to release an all-Italian album called La Prima Estate in 2013, but that one seemingly never appeared.) His recent music was made with the still-touring Kings Of Convenience and the now-broken-up the Whitest Boy Alive. Much like his work with those acts, Øye’s solo stuff is acoustic indie-folk, appropriately complemented here by Cara Cebrian’s minimalist clip. The video animates the song through perpetually mobile illustrations, all tied together by images of a cartoon Øye dancing in funky shirts. Watch below.
Legao is out 10/03 via Bubbles Records. Pre-order here.
