Fakear’s “Animal” Video Is An Ode To Life And Hot-Air Balloons

“We are all animals.”

October 21, 2015

Fakear debuted an impressive visual for his "Animal" single today. The beat is sharp but slightly sloppy, like a neo-soul groove re-purposed for the club. The video follows a hopeful young boy as he sets out on a quest to track down a hot-air balloon, and the protagonist turns out to be as irrepressible as the buoyant synths that float through the song.

In an email, Fakear tells FADER, "this track means that we are all animals—we are all surrounded by living forms. In this video, the little boy believes that balloons are alive, because they are moving by themselves." Watch above.
