Calpurnia "Wasting Time" video

Calpurnia have dropped a new animated video for “Wasting Time,” the track is off their current release Scout which came out earlier this year on Royal Mountain Records. The video was created by animator, Martin MacPherson, who has worked on all the Calpurnia videos thus far and created the animation for “My Dead Dad’s Porno Tapes” and has recently worked on projects for Washed Out and Flying Lotus.

Martin MacPherson on the video foe “Wasting Time”:

“Certain music has a way of evoking vivid memories from your past. Good memories, bad memories, weird ones, too. I wanted this video to depict a story of music bringing a civilization, frozen in time, back to life with all those beautiful, ugly and strange memories being revived, at least for the length of the song. I think there can be a danger to living in the past too much however and at a certain point it’s time to move on. I chose to show this by drawing spaceships and strange, melting, monsters and Calpurnia were super cool with letting me do so. I was inspired by Jason Bartel’s Cover Art for the band’s EP and wanted to continue that aesthetic throughout as a post-cataclysmic version of the world you see in the art for City-Boy and Greyhound. I did my best to hide some other Calpurnia reference’s throughout the video as well that you may have to go back and look for in case you missed them the first time around.”

Finn Wolfhard on the video for “Wasting Time”:

“We are really happy to make an animated video and happier still to have worked with Marty. His style is very unique and I don’t think there is anything else out there that looks like this video. Marrying his images to our music is super cool.”
