Watch Brazos' Animated Video For "Long Shot"

Martin Crane of Brazos seems to have this whole “art” thing down. His Dead Oceans debut, Saltwater, was a blissful blend of his innermost thoughts channeled through bright, breezy melodies. But Crane hasn’t limited himself to music, as the past few videos from Brazos have been directed by the band’s frontman and featured eye-catching animation.

The new video for “Long Shot,” Saltwater’s heavy-hearted closer, features more of Crane’s artwork on display. Moons, animals, bodies and eyes are all drawn out with a Chinese calligraphy brush and stitched together to animate the track.

Brazos is currently on tour with Cayucas. Check out all of their tour dates below.
