If I didn’t know better, I’d swear Au’s video for “Ida Walked Away” is a segment on color from Reading Rainbow All it needs is young Kunta Kinte, and it’d be in business. The animation is just lo-fi enough for it to seem non-commercial, but hi-fi enough that it’s obvious that someone spent a decent amount of time on this. It fits the song very well, kidding aside, since Au are about the collisions of noise they create, and this is a collision of color and the absence of color. It’s a mellow clip, which is good for this kind of wintery day.
Au’s Versions EP is out now via Aagoo. [P4K]
