Toledo release their Jockeys Of Love EP on February 12th next year.
Brooklyn-based duo Daniel Alvarez and Jordan Dunn-Pilz have shared their new Toledo song It’s Alive!, complete with a video directed and animated by Gaia Alari.
“The video is a fully analog, traditional, hand-drawn, frame per frame animation made entirely in wax pastels on paper, directed and drawn by a one woman crew,” the director states.
“The song is an unconventional love song, and personally I really liked how brilliantly it explores, in contrast with its lulling melody, one of the cruelest aspects of love: the more or less subtle desire to mold and change one another into something more fitting.”
“I tried to include sequences that show visible or invisible hands in the process of sewing, moving, molding the images/characters on screen, up to the point that one doesn’t recognize themselves in the mirror anymore.”
