Since they burst onto Australia’s indie rock scene in 2015 with their debut album, The Positions, Gang of Youths have been one of Australia’s best kept secrets. Their warped, proggy take on indie rock has gotten them fans around the world, and they’ve seemed like they’re on the cusp of breaking through in a big way.

Which is why we’re hyped to bring you this premiere of their brand new video for “What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out.” Made by Thomas Rawle, a self-taught animator, the song’s rushing riff is backed by images of fleeing animated fauna, warplanes, diving whales, and pirate ships. Here’s what Rawle said about the narrative arc of the video:

“With this clip, the band sent me some paintings by Norton Wisdom as a point of reference as well as television show Evangelion. There was also the desire to not have something super narrative driven, the song reminded me of the dread of running out of life in your life if that makes sense? So with that notion I kinda imagined a boy on the moon who has to fly down to save earth from a strange fire, he’s chased by giant flying sail boats which eventually end up being his vessel for rescue. It’s loose in terms of narrative so hopefully everyone can take something different from it.”
