Cage the Elephant Get Animated in ‘Come a Little Closer’ Video
Cage the Elephant have unveiled their new animated video for ‘Come a Little Closer,’ and it’s a little trippy!
Showing off their creativity, the animated video for ‘Come a Little Closer’ opens with the band transported to a kaleidoscopic, mythical world largely created by the imagination of frontman Matt Shultz.
Shultz shared his original illustrations for the project, allowing them to come to life throughout the video. Check it out above to be transported into the colorful mind of Shultz as he and his bandmates planet hop through the universe, ward off beasts and do their best to survive as the song rings out around them.
Serving as the latest single from their latest album ‘Melophobia,’ ‘Come a Little Closer’ has been gaining momentum on the charts since its release in August, ultimately landing at No. 1 on the Alternative Radio Chart earlier this week.
Cage the Elephant will spend the rest of 2013 performing at various radio festivals throughout the U.S. before they head overseas to kick off their European tour in February.
