Watch Explosions In The Sky New Video

 

Taken from Take Care,
Take Care, Take Care, it’s like a Roger Dean drawing coming to life…

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Explosions In The Sky has unveiled the first official music
video of the band’s 12-year career. The animated clip for “Last Known
Surroundings” from the band’s new album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care was recently premiered at Wired.com who called it “a
Space-Tripping wonder… like a celestial love child of the original Tron,
2001: A Space Odyssey and Japanese Art.”

Months in the making, “Last Known
Surroundings” directed  by Ptarmak, a design studio based in
Explosions’ native Austin who utilized illustrations by Sissy Emmons and
animation from David Hobizal to create an otherworldly visual interpretation of
the epic instrumental track.
