Animation and music collide in 'Cirrus,' Bonobo and Cyriak's incredibly trippy music video

bonobo cyriak cirrus

The music video for Bonobo's newest song, "Cirrus," is a beautifully surreal video collage created by British animator Cyriak. Though not as disturbing as some of Cyriak's previous work — or as strange as his Adult Swim bumps — the music video is certainly weird, using old footage of ordinary life to create complex machines and giant robots. The delightfully airy song will be available on Bonobo's upcoming album, The North Borders, which releases worldwide on April 1st, and April 2nd in North America.
