Boys Latin will be released as the second single from Panda Bear’s critically acclaimed recent album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, on 23rd March 2015.
The ‘Boys Latin’ video was directed by Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsch, the duo behind videos for Bjork’s ‘Wanderlust’ and Grizzly Bear’s ‘Knife’. Their SF-based studio, Encyclopedia Pictura, animated the video in 3D over the course of 4 months. The story of a young woman out for a hike along a coastal tide pool turns unreal when her encounter with a sea anemone triggers a phantasmagorical reaction. She meets a man who seems to be in a similar predicament, and together they start a family of sorts. Watch the hallucinatory yet heartfelt video for ‘Boys Latin’, here.
Panda Bear and Sonic Boom (a.k.a. Pete Kember) shot a behind the scenes short film interview piece on the making of PBVSGR in Lisbon, Portugal directed by Sam Fleischner, watch it now BELOW.
