VIDEO: Hiatus Kaiyote released a fun and abstract new visual for "And We Go Gentle"

via YouTube

Hiatus Kaiyote released a new music video for their Mood Valiant song "And We Go Gentle." The song addresses the idea of attraction through the lens of a moth's attraction to light, and the video puts a fun spin on the concept.

Lead singer Nai Palm expanded on the idea and the video in a statement with The Fader. She said:
"For the video, I wanted to reference the Japanese film style of tokusatsu in celebration of Mothra (an angel moth that can defeat Godzilla). I made the costume myself out of aquarium plants and old tabi boots.The video is a search for love, but from a quirky humorous perspective. On the morning of the shoot, there was an earthquake, which added to the mystery and epic-ness of the shoot. It was such a dream to work with director Grey Ghost again. He is such a creative champion."
Hiatus Kaiyote also announced their "And We Go Gentle" European tour this week. Watch the new video for the song below.
