Now available for your eyes and ears: The Helio Sequence’s official video for “Battle Lines”, from their self-titled 6th effort, directed by Robin Washburn and featuring animation from Emanuelle Kabu (“Upward Mobility”).
Robin had this to say about the new video: “Exciting to work with The Helio Sequence again, and felt very lucky to have collaborated with Emanuele Kabu. My particular contribution to the look of the “live” portion of this video involved running the motion vector information through a small set of looping “electric” colors, then blacking out the static background, creating a kind of Tron-like world. Once that was in place we sent it off to Emanuele to dream up whatever he wanted… and I think it all turned out fantastic. A really fun project to be involved in.”
The Helio Sequence is out now on CD/LP/DL worldwide from Sub Pop, and you can spend your hard earned dollars (or your allowance) on it via Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Everyone who purchases the LP from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited “Loser Edition” on yellow-colored vinyl.
