Video: The Notwist – Kong

With their new album ‘Close To The Glass‘ set for release on February 24 by City Slang, The Notwist share an, accidentally very topical, new video for their ludicrously catchy new single ‘Kong‘.

The animated visual, directed by Japanese film-maker Yu Sato and featuring illustrations from Tim Divall, tells the true story of a young boy and his family trapped in their home by a flood, dreaming of being saved by a superhero as the water rose around them. Little did Sato know when making the video, quite how scarily apt it would be when released.

We’ve already posted the tense title track, and now here’s "Kong", a surprisingly uptempo cut from long-running German act the Notwist‘s new record, Close to the Glass, which is out February 25 in the U.S. via Sub Pop, February 24 in Europe via City Slang, February 12 in Japan via Afterhours, and February 21 in Australia via Spunk.
