The clip was directed by Jack Brown, who was also responsible for the similarly animated ‘Nightrider’ music video, featuring Freddie Gibbs.
‘Tidal Wave’ was animated by Brown, Ala Nunu Leszynska, Nanda Ormond, Guarav Wakankar, Chloé Mainge, Freddie Griffiths, Martin Robic and Caitlin Young. Watch it below:
The Tiny Desk rendition of ‘Tidal Wave’ featured R&B singer/songwriter Joel Culpepper on vocals and Rocco Palladino – the son of legendary session bass player Pino Palladino – on bass guitar. Misch and Dayes stuck to lead vocals/guitar and drums respectively.
In the series so far, he has covered Thundercat‘s ‘Them Changes’ and a mashup of Luther Vandross’ ‘Never Too Much’ and Mac Miller‘s ‘What’s the Use’. Most recently, he performed a cover of ‘Parabéns’ by Marcos Valle, assisted by Valle himself.
