Brooklyn based New Zealand band Streets of Laredo are back with a new video for Lonsdale Line, their new single, which has been painstakingly hand animated by NYC’s Chris Tucci & Steve Mertens. We caught up with the band yesterday who told us about the song and video.
“Lonsdale Line is a song that’s very close to Streets of Laredo’s heart. It really took shape over the last 18 months since the band relocated to Brooklyn from New Zealand. Basically we worked it up and fleshed out through playing it at countless dive bars in Bushwick, Williamsburg and the Lower East Side. In October last year we were offered a residency at the Ace Hotel, the night was curated by Chris Tucci who turned out to be amazing animator and illustrator. Him and his partner Steve Mertens created the video for us. We’re very happy with it and think it brings something really special to the song.” We couldn’t agree more, watch it below:
