Kane Strang releases new video

Kane Strang releases video for "Oh So You're Off I See"

Kane Strang has unveiled the official video for his new single, “Oh So You’re Off I See”. The video was filmed over the span of a day in Central Otago in Strang’s home country of New Zealand. The location was chosen for its natural environment and large, industrial man-made structures. It shares the same contrasting elements as the video. Different colours and cuts of glass were used to create a distorted effect that, when combined with the surrounding landscape, achieved a strange, moving collage. Additional performance footage was shot the night before at the band’s practice space in Dunedin, the Attic.

“Oh So You’re Off I See” is the first single from Strang’s forthcoming album set for release later this year through Dead Oceans. Strang has moved away from the bedroom and into the studio, taking a more collaborative approach to recording and writing with his band. The four-piece twists Strang’s melodies and accentuates his hooks.

Strang’s North American tour kicks off this Friday, March 3rd at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and takes him to Savannah Stopover, SXSW, Treefort, and more. Strang’s initial SXSW schedule has also been announced. These are his first shows ever outside of New Zealand. A full list of dates is below.
