Big Noble is the collaborative project between Interpol’s Daniel Kessler and sound designer Joseph Fraioli. Their full album First Light came out earlier this year, but the duo have also shared several videos in support of their music, including “Peg,” “Ocean Picture,” and “Atlantic Din.” Today, we get the visuals for “Pedal” which were directed by Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio. Kessler also shared that he and Adebimpe have known each other for about two decades:
I’ve known Tunde for about twenty years. We met at university in New York, and he contributed some killer stuff to an internet ‘zine I was doing at the time. The dude is a fantastic artist and was one of the first people I thought of when we started reaching out to directors to make videos for the Big Noble album.
The video billows and whirs through vivid color palettes that mask faces and ecosystems in their wake. All of the Big Noble videos have been astonishing in their precision, but the fluidity of this one surpasses them all. Watch it below.
First Light is out now via Kobalt.
