The arty outfit have assembled some of their tunes from the breakthrough album Swing Lo Magellan into a colourful short film written and directed by their creative force David Longstreth.

The film, titled Hi Custodian incorporates the chamber pop compositions into a mishmash of images from modern urban schlock to pastoral reveries, spiritual wanders and suburban scenes.

He described the film as being “made out of a dream,” adding, “it was so fun getting into these alternate personas, inhabiting them, and I think we came up with some amazing images.”

It features alternative versions of ‘Offspring Are Blank’, ‘About To Die’, ‘Gun Has No Trigger’, ‘See What She Seeing’, ‘The Socialites’, and ‘Just From Chevron’, as well as snippets and studio outtakes.
