Montpelier clip, Last Boat


YouTube Preview Image

So we posted the new Montpelier single ‘Last Boat‘ a few weeks ago, to a rather enthusiastic response from the indie-webs music community. The lads have just dropped us the new clip for the track, exclusively to show ya’ll.

Using the old painstaking ‘paper-stop-motion-technique’, which took creator Paul Andrew Rhodes around 17 years to make, a small bearded hipster goes on an exciting hallucinogenic journey into a nautical wonderland. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but the hipster rides a squid.. Enjoy.

    Most random film clip I have ever seen in my life! I think it rocks though and the song is even better. It’s a shame the hipster had to throw a stick at the bird. I like birds

    Montpelier’s ‘Last Boat’ would have to be my favourite song at the moment. It gets repeated very frequently in my itunes library and has the best melodic lines. This song never ceases to take me on a journey. This film clip is so kooky and random, I love it 🙂 Bring on the album hey???
