Oxenfree: Machine

Oxenfree / Machine

Animated music video for 'Machine' - from Brooklyn based OxenFree's recently released Another Land, a new EP that captures the band's boisterous psych pop with the twang of Nashville (where the record was recorded) filtered through the hustle of the New York.

With malfunctioning toasters, this animation looks at the drone-like working conditions of society, captured by the portrayal of the protagonists' transfixed smile via his robot helmet amid his own pained eyes. There's a sweet sentiment to be found however as the tide turns for those willing to hold on long enough.
