SeepeopleS share animated visuals for their song “Shame” [video]

Acclaimed genre-defining indie pranksters SeepeopleS, led by Portland-based singer-songwriter Will Brandford, return with animated visuals for their insightful record “Shame.” The alternative-pop tune explores the modern world we live in filled with fear and pain of living in a country under constant threat of violence, where safety can’t even be guaranteed in schools. Through somber piano keys, lush guitar riffs, and soft drums, this atmospheric track explores the fast-changing world we live in where the strong feed on the meek and gives listeners a brooding sense of urgency in real-time. Lines like “Happens to me, every time I breathe/ I feel deceived, every passing moment I struggle to believe” dig deep into an individual who has lost his innocence but still tries to find a sliver of hope for a better world.
The accompanying music video was animated by Pete List, known for his animation work on MTV’s Celebrity Death Match and his stop-motion music videos and depicts the harrowing magical journey of a child bullied and living in a world where school shootings are heartbreakingly commonplace.  This marks the second collaboration between List and SeepeopleS, following 2018’s “New American Dream” which won a Pixie Award for “Best Video” but was eventually banned by Facebook for its outspoken politics.

“Shame” is taken from HATE EP, the band’s 7th studio release and it’s the second release in a three-part series called SeepeopleS LOVE/HATE/LIVE, HATE was produced by long-time SeepeopleS collaborator Will Holland at Chillhouse Studios (The Pixies, Dead Can Dance)
