A heartfelt meditation on the current state and future of music for Glass Animals’ track “Heat Waves.” Directed remotely by Colin Read (previously featured here), the project was shot with social distancing and involved enlisting an entire block’s worth of quarantined London residents to become part of the camera team! As the bands own Dave Bayley states:

“This video is a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it. It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighbourhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones. These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas etc. These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realizing you are unable to save something…and this video is about that but for art, being together, and human contact. …When everyone was leaning out of their windows filming, I felt that same sense of togetherness and spine-tingling energy that happened at live shows. It made the coldness of performing to an empty room with the band stuck on screens feel even more heart-breaking.”
