Bombay Bicycle Blast Off

Bombay Bicycle Club's polychromatic guitar phrases always seemed to possess an hypnotic, hallucinogenic quality. So it's fitting that their latest video, How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep, is a stop-motion dream sequence in which a man in his pyjamas climbs a ladder to the moon.

Painstakingly pieced together over six months by the band's school-friend Anna Ginsberg (that's her above), it's a beautiful, lyrical companion piece to the song. Take a look.

Anna has documented the creation of the video on her website, Bicycles On The Moon.

And if that all leaves you in the mood for more whimsical, lunar-centric puppetry, here is an episode of Button Moon. Don't say I don't spoil you.
