Later this month the Notwist will put out Close To The Glass, their first album in six years. We’ve already heard the title track and “Kong,” and now they have shared the Yu Sato directed video for the latter. It’s an animated clip about a man trying to escape a massive flood which eventually turns into a kaiju monster. The cartoon style, framed in an old television, gives it a charm that is more Hanna-Barbera than Merian C. Cooper (or Peter Jackson for that matter). When all seems lost Kong dives in to try and save the day. We won’t reveal the winner, but let’s just say anyone who has seen King Kong Vs. Godzilla knows it’s a rookie monster mistake to take on Kong in the water during a storm. -- Stereogum
