In San Francisco band EagleWolfSnake's new video for "Closer" the trio climb into a crazy man's cardboard box contraption and end up starring in their own video game as Mario-inspired characters navigating the obstacles of a digital San Francisco. It's a clever concept that works well with the uptempo electronic-pop song and makes for an equally intriguing watch. 
The band, formed in 2014, wanted to do an animated video for a while and when they met someone in Boston who designs '80s inspired Nintendo visuals for music videos, they jumped at the opportunity. They decided "Closer" would be the best song to animate as it's about getting "to the ultimate life experience," says bassist and vocalist Eli Meyskens. "In this song, we tried to tell the story of trying to get to that point and also paint a picture of what it looks like." 

Interested in seeing EagleWolfSnake live? Catch them at 8 p.m., Saturday, July 30, at Starry Plough in Berkeley.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
