Jagjaguwar is excited to share PARTS & LABOR’s latest video with the world! Made for ‘The Gold We’re Digging’ from “Mapmaker,” released last May, this visual roller-coaster-ride artfully complements the band’s supersonic rock propulsions. This is what P&L had to say about it:
“At long last, our video for ‘The Gold We’re Digging’ sees the light of day. It was directed and edited by Nicholas Chatfield-Taylor. I can’t say enough good things about the work he’s done, the video came out even better than I anticipated. Thanks Nick!”
They also describe the meticulous shooting plan: “We did well over 400 takes total over the course of two days of shooting (34+ hours). We divided the song up into sections, each section had different camera placements. We’d set up a “frame” of the background and play in front of it for however long the animation was to play for, which for the solid colors was the entire song.”
Stereogum.com was psyched to post this video exclusively yesterday and today. Now you can also check it out here.
