San Antonio’s We Leave At Midnight recently released their new album The Holy Rolling Flower Band via Texas Is Funny Records and now the band are sharing the music video for “Milo.” The video matches the hypnotic tone of the song, utilizing Frank Weysos’ keen eye and vision for creating multiple journeys in one cohesive project. It’s one massive psych/indie collaboartion that does not fall short of the mark.
We Leave At Midnight’s John Dailey shared: “For “Milo” we worked with Frank Weysos, who has directed videos for bands such as Dr. Dog, Grace Potter, Heartless Bastards, Spanish Gold, Black Pistol Fire, and more. I had the idea to shoot it at the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Antonio and try stop animation for the first time. We filmed the rest of it at our friends art space K23 Gallery. I thought a fictitious “rammoth” and a cloud would be a good example of two unlikely lost creatures that should never of been together in the first place and find each other in the end. I’ve always thought cotton and yarn play well on camera too.”
