The Avalanches release “Subways” video

The Avalanches release "Subways" video, the track comes off The Avalanches latest release 'Wildflowers'

The Avalanches have revealed the video for “Subways,” the new single from their latest release Wildflower, now out on Astralwerks. The Avalanches teamed up with subversive French illustrators Mrzyk & Moriceau, who created a rainbow rail 2D animated trip through New York City’s subway system. Produced by Parisian production company Division, Mrzyk & Moriceau’s vision of “Subways” follows a hand drawn cast of colorful outcasts as they walk, skate, dance and sing a surreal tale on their ordinarily mundane commute. Mrzyk & Moriceau’s work has been seen in galleries worldwide, in public installations and in children’s books. They have also made music videos for such artists as Air, Sebastien Tellier and Jackson & His Computer Band.

Sampling the teenage funk-punk of Chandra’s “Subways” and Graham Bonnet’s version of The Bee Gees’ late period classic, “Warm Ride,” “Subways” is a lucid dreamscape, a glimpse into a psychedelic summertime which will take listeners back to the classic grooves of The Avalanches’ 2000 debut Since I Left You.

Their firat single of Wildflower “Frankie Sinatra” featuring Danny Brown and MF DOOM – has more than three million views. Other collaborators on Wildflower include Camp Lo, Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev), Toro y Moi, Jonti Danimals, Biz Markie, Jennifer Herrema (Royal Trux), Warren Ellis (Dirty Three, the Bad Seeds), Father John Misty, psych-poet David Berman, orchestrator Jean Michel-Bernard (The Science of Sleep) and long-time live accomplice James Dela Cruz.
