Andy Shauf "Quite Like You" (video)
Published Oct 19, 2016Andy Shauf is keeping The Party raging on with a new video for "Quite Like You."
The new clip was animated and directed by fellow Canuck musician Chad VanGaalen, who has recently turned in pieces for artists like Tanya Tagaq and Shad, Holy Fuck and Daniel Romano.
The collaboration from Shauf and VanGaalen takes viewers into a meta world of awkward parties. Bizarre-looking "party mutants" roam through rooms interacting with each other — controlled, we learn, by zoned-out gamers on couches. At the heart of it, though, there's a totally endearing alien love story.
"Andy's story was really easy to get inside of and hang out for a while, so I just sat right here in my drawing chair and decided what type of fashion the party mutants would be wearing," VanGaalen said in a statement. "Tennis ball pedestal helmets will obviously be available soon-ish."
"I'm a big fan of everything Chad makes, so I was really glad we could work with him on this video," Shauf added. "We gave him free reign and he knocked it outta the park. I also didn't realize an alien party could be so emotional."
