What’s the ‘Stealing Sheep ‘BIG WOWS’ Video Series Premiere’? Well, let me explain…
6 Music favourites and electro-pop trio Stealing Sheep have teamed up with animator Emily Garner (A.K.A Pastel Castle) to create a video series to accompany their latest album – BIG WOWS.
Pastel has created a video odyssey, one that links the songs to retro games and arcades, in a glitchy ‘pixel’ multi-verse, where Stealing Sheep appear as various characters including Tamagotchi pets, cyber fairies, super heroes and Zelda inspired avatars.
The premiere, taking place on Wednesday 13th November will include a live ‘sing-along’ karaoke hosted by Stealing Sheep, a Q & A with the band and director plus after party DJ set with Stealing Sheep.
Bex, M and Luci say “We’ve been virtual friends with Pastel (Emily!) for a while and we always love what she’s posting online…we loved listening to her music, watching her animations and seeing her game designs. She did a cute video for a Liverpool punk band called ‘Eye saw and the Jinx’ which had some funny satire stuff going on, it felt very on point and witty!
“She has a positive, glistening energy that really stands out and she has pink hair and loves ‘Adventure Time’ so we knew we were made for each other!!! We were really excited that she said ‘yes’, she’s brought so much to the album, it’s like having a new band member! She’s our hero!”
Pastel says “All of the videos have been built digitally frame-by-frame at my home animation studio in Leeds. I tend to consume a lot of sugar and chocolate while working, especially on long 10-18 hour animation shifts.
“I also tend to rinse full cartoon series from start to finish during animation work (recently including Neo Yokio, Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, My Little Pony, Rilakkuma and Kaoru, Attack on Titan, Tokyo Ghoul and Pokemon Indigo League).”
