THE HEAD AND THE HEART ‘SUMMERTIME’ ANIMATED VIDEO BY CHAD VANGAALEN

THATH1Seattle’s The Head and the Heart share the dazzling and extraordinary animated video for ‘Summertime’, a charming track off the band’s sophomore effort, ‘Let’s Be Still’ released on Sub Pop last October. The video was made by Canadian-based musical and creative force Chad VanGaalen, whose album ‘Shrink Dust’ is out now on the same Seattle label.

Charity Rose Thielen, the song’s siren, who has a reputation for bringing down the house during the band’s raucous live performances, had a vision for the visuals to accompany the song…”I have long been a fan of stop-motion animation, specifically the charming 80’s plasticine series, “Frog and Toad Are Friends”, which I adored growing up.” Explained Charity Rose. “Knowing of fellow Sub Pop artist, Chad VanGaalen’s creative mind, I was so excited to bring “Summertime” to his visual table.”THATH2Watch the video for ‘Another Story’.

Check out Chad VanGaalen’s ‘Monster and ‘Where Are You?’, both taken from his album ‘Shrink Dust’, out now on Sub Pop.
