Roadkill Ghost Choir has that kind of bluegrass-tinged harmony that feels familiar before you’ve even heard a track. For Jaime Margary, the animator behind the music video for their track “Bird in My Window,” that sentiment rang particularly true.

“The song was often sung by a roommate of mine,” said Margary. “Often enough that it got stuck in my head before ever hearing the actual song.”

Some time later, Margary was going through a difficult time and found the song stuck in his head. This time, a visual came to mind.

“Since the visual was attached to the song, it had to be a music video, and I wanted the band’s blessings,” Margary said. “Several months later we all sat down and I showed them what I had. We made it the official video that day.”

The video is composed of over nine months of work and includes illustrations, watercolor paintings, digital animation, and more edited together by Margary.
