Swimming at Night is from The Django’s Winter’s beach EP released in October 2018. With a nod to some iconic graphic and video styles from the 70’s and 80’s, mixed media techniques and a low frame rate to achieve a distinctive tactile quality. Meandering through deconstructed figurative, scenic, and natural forms from the start of the video, sets the stage for introducing some trippier ‘life forms underwater’ when the track submerges us into the vibrant choruses. The imagery is familiar, but subverted, using non-linear animation techniques. We wanted the video to embody the off-beat eccentricities of the track, whilst still having a bold, bright pop sensibility.
