Earlier this month, Cut Copy shared their first proper song in four years, “Airborne,” and today the track has a vividly-imagined music video to go along with it. It was directed by Gerson Aguerri and follows Cut Copy head honcho Dan Whitford as a hunt for a late-night snack snack turns into a scenario where he’s actually hunted by an otherwordly visitor. Here’s what Whitford had to say about the video in a press release:
The video for our song ‘Airborne’ is probably the most interesting and most challenging that I’ve ever been involved in. It was shot in Barcelona, all through the night for three days running and culminated with a final scene with me having not slept for 24 hours and playing a piano on the back of a moving truck. To say it was a once in a lifetime experience is no understatement! Despite the sleep deprivation, Gerson and his team at CANADA did a fantastic job bringing this surreal story to life.
“Airborne” is out now.
