Explosions In The Sky Present Second Ever Music Video “Be Comfortable, Creature”

Explosions In The Sky has followed up its “space-tripping wonder” (WIRED) of a debut video “Last Known Surroundings” with its second ever clip, “Be Comfortable, Creature.” (watch it below or at explosionsinthesk.com

Directed by longtime EITS creative associate Paul Logan, “Be Comfortable, Creature” employs the emotional currents of the track from current album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care as backdrop to an utterly unique and supremely touching romantic fable built on bittersweet longing, alienation and physical transformation.

Director Logan explained that the genesis of the video’s concept came about as Explosions’ Munaf Rayani first played him the album: “Their music has always been evocative and there’s nothing better for me than to put on an Explosions record and daydream. I’ve written entire scripts inspired by one moment in an Explosions song. as i sat down and the record began my mind immediately raced away. Each song took me to another world and stirred up a number of ideas and feelings. Then track four came on (at the time there were no song titles), and I immediately saw this creature lost on Earth. As the song unfolded so did the story. I just watched it. It made me remember the fears of growing up, of feeling like an outcast in a small town, of being lonely, of wanting to be a kid again, and of being in love. A couple of months later a few friends and myself went out and over a month we filmed it. It’s homemade, personal, and like Explosions In The Sky, heartfelt.”

“Be Comfortable, Creature” stars Neil Maris and features Magali Pijpers, Esteban Rey and Penelope + Sylvia. It was created with help from Rey, Pijpers, Sarah Meraz, Martha O’harra, Mr. Manners, Tyler Frazier and David Hobizal.

Currently in the midst of a North American tour that concludes October 16 with the penultimate slot at this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, Explosions In The Sky have just confirmed a December run of dates on Australia and New Zealand. The Australian dates go on sale September 14, New Zealand September 15.
