Portugal. The Man's video for "All Your Light" is a classic case of animated anxiety. Picture this: In a series of claymation explosions and birth through ingestion, a nervous father and son team leave their hermetic world to steal gems from plastic cup towers with a gluttonous villain rushing after them. Upon success, their battle between good and evil isn't yet over when this menace ruptures the father figure's body, quite literally, in half. There's a fair amount of oozing pastel organs as our clay hero defeats the bad guy in a classic David/Goliath triumph. These strange visuals, created by Justin Kramer & Lee Hardcastle, fit into the eccentric tone oscillating between whiny falsetto and guttural vocal responses. The ominous synth magic cooperates with a background of true psychedelic guitar riffs to create a song only appropriate for a tripped-out Play-doh epic.
The track is off Portugal. The Man's latest release In the Mountain, in the Cloud, their first effort on Atlantic Records.
