Complicated Animals have released the video for their acoustic cover of “Times Like These” by Foo Fighters.
Artist Karla Caprali created the video using a traditional animation technique, drawing each frame by hand. She helped to realize the duo’s vision, by featuring some of this year’s major world happenings.
The Joy of Violent Movement blog had this to say about it… “The recently released video for the Complicated Animals “Times Like These” cover features some gorgeous, hand drawn and old-timey storybook-like animation by Brazilian visual artist and animator Karla Caprali. The video manages to capture some of the tragic and inspiring events of what may be one of the more difficult years humanity has seen in some time — from the fear, uncertainty and stress of a pandemic, the Black Lives Matter marches in the aftermath of the deaths of George Floyd, Armaud Arbury and others and more. And while we may have gone through so much together — and apart — it feels like there’s a cautious optimism that we can get things right for once.”
