“Taking Care of Eddy” has been a choice cut from Surfer Blood‘s new album Snowdonia and today, we’re taking a closer look at its recently released music video. Directed by Niko Guardia and Sachio Cook, the animated video establishes a strange and curious universe that matches up with the intensity of the tune itself.
The colours are great, as the narrative follows a set of characters squashing the ‘Eddys’. As Guardia explains,
“The main idea was to match the intense energy in parts of the song, juxtaposed with the pretty and soothing melodies. We wanted the world within the music video to be full of strange pretty lights and ominous settings, yet our main characters are not deterred from roaming and squashing the creatures known as ‘Eddys’.”
With additional animation by Kevin Kypers, “Taking Care of Eddy” is a sure romp and brings the song to life in a new and interesting way. Watch below!
