Midnight Snack have unveiled the stand-out visuals for their track, ‘Magic‘, taken from their latest album, Child’s Eyes.
Just in time for Halloween, the cryptic visuals for ‘Magic‘ take you on a pocket-sized journey as the card cut out frontman, Jack Victor, makes his way through an arts and crafts dream world.
During the stop-motion mystery, Victor encounters a skeleton cat which leads him on a treacherous journey through the undergrowth. All is not as it seems when he bumps into a scrawled shadowy figure and tumbles into the abyss. Back on his feet, he is joined by his living-dead band mates and ghostly apparitions before the Borrowers-style quintet and skeleton cat dance their troubles away.
Whilst the video is ever so slightly creepy, the happy-go-lucky love song dances somewhere between psychedelic 70s rock and art-pop. Gorgeous synths and orchestral elements meander between the open spaces as Victor asks a loved one, “What happened to all the magic?” Watch the video below.
Child’s Eyes, which was released back in April, is an examination of the connection between love and the art of growing up. Speaking about the record to Consequence of Sound, the band’s bass player Peter Brownlee explains: “I think it’s an exploration of how being in love allows you and even pushes you to grow up.”
