Yeasayer released their new album, Amen & Goodbye, last month via Mute. Previously the band had shared the video for "I Am Chemistry." Today they have shared the second video from the record, for "Silly Me." Mike Anderson directs the strange and surreal animated clip, which features murderous human-sized cats and a woman who gets transported to a weird world. The band describes it as a prequel to the "I Am Chemistry" video.

Anderson commented on the video in a press release: "We use a pretty unique approach; pretty much everything in every frame is handmade and hand-painted. We then 3D scan all of it, bringing it into the computer so it's entirely recreated digitally. We record motion-capture of performers and apply the data to the characters for the animation. The lighting is all done in the computer. So while the final product is ostensibly CGI, nearly everything you're seeing is a digital record of something we directed or fabricated in real-life. Best of all worlds."

Watch it below, followed by the band's tour dates. Also pick up Under the Radar's current print magazine issue to read a new interview with Yeasayer about Amen & Goodbye.
