IAN SWEET – “Shapeshifter” Video

In 2016, IAN SWEET released their debut album, Shapeshifter, and it was one of our favorite albums of the year. The band is gearing up for a follow-up soon, but today they’re revisiting that album’s title track with a new video for it, which was directed by Alix Spence with animation by Sarah Schmidt. In it, Jilian Medford sings directly to the camera through a smeared lens; she’s in exaggerated makeup, and illustrations drip down alongside her as she split-screens into a dozen different parts. It has a placid effect, mimicking the wooziness of the track itself. Watch the video below.
