Published Jul 17, 2014Before Shimmering Stars let us explore the Bedrooms of the Nation with them, the Vancouver indie pop unit are liberating an animated video for the record's "Role Confusion," which comes with a pro-animal point of view.
Scored by a fuzzy pop rock arrangement, the clip first finds a bunch of ultra-blue caged animals being held captive by a carnival's top-hatted baddie. Coming to the rescue is a pack of pipe smoking wolves, who pluck a pair of lupine pals and phonograph from the circus scene to spin Shimmering Stars' tunes at woodlands party. Nature and technology don't always seem to go hand in hand, though, and you'll find out why down below.
