Wild Beasts have teamed up with French artist Mattis Dovier to create a graphic novel made entirely of GIFs. The project was created for The Jameson Works, a portfolio of artistic works sponsored by the whiskey company. Two new Wild Beasts songs — “Soft Future” and “Blood Knowledge” — soundtrack the novel, which you navigate by clicking the spacebar on your computer and having the story unfold one frame and note at a time. The unreleased songs have been deconstructed by the band to fit the story. You can watch a behind the scenes video of how they made the novel and broke apart the music below, and click here to experience the graphic novel in full.
