Khruangbin

‘Pelota’

Glassworks Creative Studio director Hugo Rodríguez Rodríguez commands all the colors of the rainbow in this dreamy companion to Khruangbin’s latest track. Pelota is the release single on the Texan trio’s new studio album Mordechai, but she is also a bundle of energy that bounces through the galaxy like a spirited ball.

Produced in eight weeks with a remote setup in Coronavirus times, this psychedelic journey brought together our team of pan-national talent – a mixed cel animation, 3D and 2D production that translates Alvaro Sotomayor’s magical story into visuals that capture Khruangbin’s musical aesthetics.
