Of Montreal’s new video from Aureate Gloom

of Montreal has had a big year so far.  They released their latest album Aureate Gloom, which landed at #88 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, and a new live album, Snare Lustrous Doomings, which featured 90 minutes of psychedelic pop and electronica that spans the band’s career. Today, following the announce of their US fall tour, of Montreal is back to share a new video for their song “Last Rites at the Jane Hotel”. The video’s lead animator Matthew Cooper talked to the Creators Project about creating this stop motion piece, saying “The tone of the song’s lyrics are quite dark… but the music has this technicolor and upbeat kind of tone to it so I think that’s what I tried to do with the video. There’s a lot of morbid elements. I tried to represent those very vivid, bubblegum sort of color schemes.” Check out the fall tour dates below.
