The Avalanches – Subways [animated video]


Subways is the jam of the summer, if not all of 2016. It’s one of those eternal grooves that will echo in your mind forever, whether you like it or not. It’s a key piece of The Avalanches‘ 15-years-in-the-making masterpiece Wildflower, and I’ve mentioned it before.

But this video is a whole new adventure. Holy shit, it sure is.

The animation feels like an anarchic hybrid of The Beatles’ timeless Yellow Submarine and Radiohead’s so-90s-it-hurts video for Paranoid Android. Yet, it’s weirder and more joyful than either. Words cannot describe it, so just go ahead and watch. You’ll be thankful you did.

The album can be found streaming on Spotify or on CD or vinyl from The Avalanches official shop.
