Watch Outer Minds’ Striking Stop-Motion ‘We Are All Stone’ Video
Track appears on Chicago psych outfit's 'Behind the Mirror' LP, out now
Outer Minds’ “We Are All Stone” music video has been a long time coming. The frenetic psych-rock track hails from the Chicago quintet’s Behind the Mirror, a ’60s-saluting LP that was released back in 2012 via FDH Records/Red Lounge Records; the song’s stop-motion visual took eight months to craft, four of which were devoted to shooting with 35mm and 16mm film. Now, the clip is finally ready to be unveiled.
Creators Zebulon Medearis and Andrew Barker have assembled a grimly beautiful, Tim Burton-esque underworld that’s cloaked in darkness and filled with monsters (one of whom has a talent for playing the organ). Explore the terrain above, and keep an eye out for a new album from Outer Minds — they’re set to unleash the follow-up to Behind the Mirror later this year.
