Children Collide get a Harry Potter animator to make a stop-motiony video and add extra shows on their Monument tour.
‘Praying For Sunshine’ is the third official single from their latest album Monument, and they’ve produced another arresting video, following up on their head-shaving clown clip for ‘Loveless’, their crowd-sourced clip for ‘Cherries’ and the homemade day-in-the-life quickie for ‘Sphere Of Influence’.
This time the band team with Leo Baker, an animator who has worked on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Get Smart, Charlotte’s Web and Superman Returns.
It’s another entry in the Johnny-brushes-his-teeth-in-clips pantheon, and also has everyday items transmogrify into felt, much like the cover of Monument.
They’ve also added extra shows all around the nation, in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and Hobart. The updated tourdates are underneath the clips.
So have a look at the whimsical little clip below, and our absurd interview with Johnny and Heath under that.
