The Claypool Lennon Delirium Shares ‘Little Fishes’ Video
Back in February, The Claypool Lennon Delirium released their highly anticipated sophomore album, South of Reality. The alternative-rock act headed by Les Claypool and Sean Lennon has now released an animated music video for “Little Fishes,” the opening track off their recent effort.
The clip was animated by Micah Buzan, who used the song’s dark lyrics as a model. Some of the animation takes direct cues from the tune, illustrating the cycle of mercury being eaten by fish and later absorbed by humans. However, Buzan also integrates his own visual interpretation of the song, with the video culminating in a showdown between fish and human.
Claypool spoke about “Little Fishes” and its video in a statement to Rolling Stone:
I’ve had the intro vocal and melody for ‘Little Fishes’ kicking around in my head for many years. … When Sean and I started working on the new record, I knew it would be perfect to develop and to add to the Delirium repertoire. Little did I know that Micah would take that music and put such mind-bending, warped animation to it. It reinforces my enjoyment and constant amazement of how immensely creative people sometimes interpret my words and music. Bravo.
