Avey Tare today releases a video for “Ms. Secret”, from the full-length album Eucalyptus. Recorded by Animal Collective’s Deakin (Josh Dibb), and featuring chamber orchestration arranged by Eyvind Kang, musicians Angel Deradoorian and Jessika Kenney, Eucalyptus was released in July of this year.
Of the video and its inspiration, says director Jack Kubizne:
“Over the years, friends and complete strangers have shared with me their feelings about the last video [Avey Tare’s “Oliver Twist” from Down There] I worked on for Dave; that it felt and looked like a home away from home within the song. I’m honored and grateful to once again help create a place that would have never existed without the sonic worlds Dave has conjured up, while also feeling like it’s someplace special I can always visit. I hope these sights and sounds invite you to do the same.
The coral and nautical motifs found throughout the album along with the shades of the Oregon dusk and dawn where I witnessed the total eclipse this year were the initial seeds for the concept which evolved with help from an amazing crew. To be able to share these visions with everybody and especially anyone who loves the band and its many forms is major for me as these guys have been a huge inspiration ever since I began animating.”
