Space Ghost Coast to Coast

by Andrew MacGregor

Glass Animals: “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” - 3 mins 10s

Commuters will never look at Haggerston train station the same way again after watching this Max Siedentopf-directed promo for Glass Animals. Siedentopf's airborne camera acquires frontman Dave Bayley on the street below, only for a swarm of computer-generated, naturist clones to steal his thunder

Evoking non-player characters in video games (Siedentopf even turns on Big Head Mode at one point), the supporting cast are malleable, endearing, and a pain to British Transport Police. Together with the band's gamified lyrics - "Doom, Quake, where'd you get the gun from, eh?" - it gleefully turns early morning Hackney into a weird and wonky naturist reserve.
