Today, Bent Knee have unveiled their gripping music video for “Time Deer” – PRESS HERE to watch. The video and song are a stunning depiction and commentary on our ever-changing and strained relationship with technology and our environment, just one of the many themes discussed on band’s critically-acclaimed album Land Animal (June 23 via InsideOutMusic/Sony).
Director Riki Nitabaru said, “The story centers around a deer that travels through time, trying to find the cause of humanity’s problems in the modern world. In my take, just as the deer finds the cause of all strife, the world starts to cleanse itself. The deer becomes a receptacle of all living things, and it morphs to become a brand new being that encompasses all life forms.”
Beginning on July 14 in Northampton, MA, the Boston-based band will embark on a North American tour bringing their enigmatic live set to Minneapolis, Denver, Madison and more, with new just-announced dates on the West Coast. See full routing below.
