The Avalanches have released a new video for their latest track ‘Subways’, featuring an animated trip through New York’s underground train service.
Earlier this year, the band released a new album called ‘Wildflower’, their first since 2000’s ‘Since I Left You’.
French illustrators Mrzyk & Moriceau are behind the visuals for ‘Subways’, with Jules de Chateleux and Clemence Cuvelier producing. You can see the video for ‘Subways’ below.
Last month, the band were forced to postpone their overseas festival shows due to a health concern. The Australian electronic group altered their touring plans after member Tony Di Blasi was advised against travelling abroad due “to a medical condition requiring treatment in Australia.”
This isn’t the first bout of ill health to strike the band: earlier this year, Robbie Chater revealed that, during the band’s lengthy period of inactivity, he’d been diagnosed with an automimmune disease. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Chater confirmed that being diagnosed with the condition in the mid-2000s left him unable to produce new music for a number of years.
Chater said, “There were three years in the mid-2000s when I was really unwell. I was diagnosed with a couple of separate autoimmune diseases, so I was out of action.”
