Hem’s new album doesn’t come out until April, but this beautifully animated video by Jordan Bruner and Greg Lytle has arrived to console us through the winter months. The video is set in the band’s hometown of Brooklyn.

“I thought it would be exciting to have animals star in a story that looks to explore the conflicting desires that stem from wanting to develop culturally, which at times can lead to feelings of frustration and confinement, while also needing to tend to our basic primitive longings,” Bruner told NPR.
