Watch Calpurnia’s vivid animated video for ‘Wasting Time’

The Finn Wolfhard-featuring band have shared the visuals ahead of next week's debut UK tour

Calpurnia have released the new video for their single ‘Wasting Time’ – watch the vivid animated visuals below.

The four-piece – who are fronted by Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard – have chosen the track from their debut ‘Scout’ EP (which came out back in June) as being worthy of receiving the video treatment.

Directed by Martin MacPherson, the clip for ‘Wasting Time’ is a vibrant and colourful affair, and features animated shots of the precocious band performing the track in space suits. Watch the video below.

Speaking about the video, MacPherson explained more about his creative process. “Certain music has a way of evoking vivid memories from your past. Good memories, bad memories, weird ones too. I wanted this video to depict a story of music bringing a civilisation, frozen in time, back to life with all those beautiful, ugly and strange memories being revived, at least for the length of the song.

“I think there can be a danger to living in the past too much however and at a certain point it’s time to move on,” he added.

Wolfhard said of the clip: “We are really happy to make an animated video and happier still to have worked with Marty.

“His style is very unique and I don’t think there is anything else out there that looks like this video. Marrying his images to our music is super cool.”
