Pop five-piece from New York The Jaguar Club have returned with a unique video for their song 'Hard Cider', taken from the 'Close' EP released in March 2015 through their own label.
The video is a short black and white film shot in stop-motion animation, mixed with a little hand drawn animation. The visual depicts sword-wielding knights riding through the wood as an ailing patient is cared for in a tower somewhere, before ultimately passing away. It was directed and animated by vocalist and guitarist William Popadic, and translates well from the eerie quality of the track with its pulsating synth waves, mournful vocals and soaring cinematic melody.
The band; who are Popadic, bassist Yoichiro Fujita, keyboardist Nadia Brittingham, guitarist Gavin Dunaway and drummer Patrick Eager; first formed in 2006 as a three-piece project before expanding. Now they're gearing up to release their debut full-length album which they are currently working on, while they continue to tour across the UK with dates yet to be announced for October. Their latest EP 'Close' was co-produced by Nick Stumpf in a DUMBO Brooklyn studio.
