Today sees Little Dragon reveal the video for their new single ‘Lover Chanting’. Directed by Jack Whiteley and Joe Wills, the fantastically idiosyncratic visuals were shot at Allington Castle in Kent and feature the band in a disco-themed RPG alongside a host of suitably off-the-wall cosplay characters. The single is taken from their brand new ‘Lover Chanting’ EP which is set for release digitally via Ninja Tune on 9th November with a 12” vinyl release scheduled for 16th November, 2018. Watch the video below!
We felt there were some strong parallels to draw between the late-70s disco scene and the world of online role play gaming. Two worlds worshipped for freedom of expression, pure escapism and the ability to redesign yourself in any way you want. This is our attempt at creating a hybrid between those two worlds – a surreal online gaming environment and a heated 70s disco dance-off! Jack Whiteley, Director
