Ahead of the release of their next album, The Very Best have shared the incredible video for their new single ‘Hear Me’. The time lapses were filmed around M’dala Chikowa Village in Mangochi where the album was written and recorded. The track features Vampire Weekend‘s Chris Baio on bass.
Johan Hugo says of shooting the video:
Between writing songs and recording we would climb the mountains above the lake and set the camera up to take time lapses. Any time we wanted a break we would bring the camera on a tripod to the shop or to someone’s small house and leave it taking time lapses. We would sit for hours in the dark while the camera clicked away, working on a song, tweaking melodies or words, mosquitoes everywhere. Sometimes we would leave the camera running and trek back to the house, hoping no one would find it.
