This is the official music video for "Rainman" from the forthcoming Erlend Øye solo album" Legao" on Bubbles Records
Directed by: Clara Cebrian
The technique used for the video is called rotoscoping, every scene is filmed and then traced. The video is made with about 2000 ink hand-drawings colored in Gouache. "The process was really 'home made' (meaning - I did't use any professional tools. made it at home with nieces running about---)" Clara graduated last year in London College of Communication, now living in Madrid.
Erlend Øye has released a video for “Rainman,” off the upcoming album Legao. This is Øye’s first solo project since 2003?s Unrest. (He was supposed to release an all-Italian album called La Prima Estate in 2013, but that one seemingly never appeared.) His recent music was made with the still-touring Kings Of Convenience and the now-broken-up the Whitest Boy Alive. Much like his work with those acts, Øye’s solo stuff is acoustic indie-folk, appropriately complemented here by Cara Cebrian’s minimalist clip. The video animates the song through perpetually mobile illustrations, all tied together by images of a cartoon Øye dancing in funky shirts. -- Stereogum
