Wilco are no strangers to animated videos — they’ve worked with Popeye in the past, for instance — and their new clip, for The Whole Love‘s somber ballad “Sunloathe,” continues on that path. Created by director Peter Glantz (Andrew W.K., OK Go!) and illustrator Nathaniel Murphy (whose illustrations were included in the album packaging for Sky Blue Sky, and who is also Glenn Kotche’s drum tech), the video “reflects the complicated emotions expressed in the song, where we feel hope and sorrow coexist,” according to Glantz. There’s definitely an epic tale being told here, albeit a pretty surreal and inscrutable one. Check it out.
