The Octopus Project – Whitby [Video]

The Octopus Project is an indie-electronic band out of Austin. This was that band that played with 2/3 of Devo at Moogfest 2010. Anyway, they’ve just released a single from their upcoming 2013 album, which will be the band’s fifth. The track is called “Whitby” and the video pretty bonkers. Here’s what the band had to say about it.

Created, shot and directed by the band, the stop-motion extravaganza was crafted entirely using die-cut colored card stock. Band members meticulously designed each shape in Photoshop then used a cutting machine generally reserved for scrapbooking to cut them out before photographing them in real world settings. The final video consists of over 4,000 separate images.
