Lump is a new project that involves Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay (Tunng). Self-titled debut album is out now via Dead Oceans. Ahead of their sold out show at London’s The Garage today, they shared a new video for the trck “May I Be The Light”, directed and animated by multi-disciplinary musician and artist Beth Jeans Houghton.
“The video for “May I Be The Light” is hand animated, meaning each frame is hand drawn on tracing paper and then placed in a sequence,” explains Beth on the creation of the video. “I was fortunate enough to see LUMP at one of their live shows a while back and was blown away, so to be able to animate one of my favourite songs from their record was a delight. A feature of their live shows is Laura’s silence between songs. An enigmatic soul flanked by two energetic guitar players. I wanted to capture the ethereal quality of her presence through animation.”
