WATCH | Pearls & Bones Drop An Animated Video For "Grains Of Land" ft. P.O.S (of Doomtree)
Our fave alternative duo from Ontario are back with a dope musi video.
Together with 40oz Heroes, Pearls & Bones are proud to present this post-apocalyptic 16-bit vision of the future.
A follow-up to the release of their album Spare Parts, the Toronto alt-hip-hop duo just recently released an animated video for their track "Grains of Land" featuring Minneapolis based emcee P.O.S (of Doomtree). The track features poignant and urgent verses from Bones and P.O.S ruminating on a not so distant future in which humankind's detrimental effects on the planet reach a breaking point.
The video is an homage to the groups heavily sci-fi influenced sensibilities, featuring Toronto monuments juxtaposed with pop culture iconography such as the DeLorean, and Millennium Falcon. It's 8-bit aesthetic reflects the synthetic and analog soundscapes of the brooding and experimental track courtesy of producer Sandy Pearlman. The video was illustrated and animated by emcee Bones (who is also a practicing product & graphic designer.
