ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with Owel to premiere their video for "Once the Ocean" from their self-titled release. The clip mixes live action and animation, and the song is one of those soothing, indie alt tracks (with a beat) that wraps around you and then embeds itself in your skull.
We won't spoil it for you, but you'll definitely want to follow the little animated dude on his travels.
"This was a really fun project for us, and really the first attempt at any kind of film," said Owel's Jay Sakong. "It was interesting because I'm usually blasting sound at my face, because I'm working on music. But while working on this video, especially during the animation process, I found myself getting really antsy in the silence. So I pretty much went through every episode of 'This American Life,' 'Radiolab,' 'Studio Q' and Joe Rogan podcasts in a month."
