Mew Release 'The Night Believer' Video

Mew have released a new music video for their song "The Night Believer", which is a track that comes from the band's current album " + - " (plus minus) [PIAS].

We were sent these details about the clip, "Produced by the UK-based Kestrel Media, the video was conceived by Lianne Pierce who also created the Pixies' animated video for 'Bagboy.' For 'The Night Believer' video, Pierce teamed up with the stop-motion animator Will Hodge (Disney's 'Frankenweenie,' Wes Anderson's 'Fantastic Mr. Fox').

"Pierce and Hodge set to work crafting 2D, cardboard creatures to cruise around in colorful, plasticine cars, using stop motion and After Effects trickery to bring everything to life.

"The result is a race between a variety of critters and a towering, hungry robot, all tangled in a myriad of color and accompanied by the cheery tune of 'The Night Believer.' Watch it here
