Hiatus Kaiyote’s video for “Chivalry Is Not Dead” is a fantastical animation of the band. They are drawn into figures with no identification heavily drenched in vibrant hues. Lead singer Nai Palm explained how the video was conceptualized in a statement:
“One of my most beloved dearest friends, Lauren YS, who is a superstar illustrator, has intricately brought to life the inner fabric of my brainâ€™s innermost desires. I feel like we are two parts of the same coin. They cover the visuals (in collaboration with animator Lester Chan), and we cover the sonics. We hope to take you on a sexy bizarre journey into the kinks of the animal kingdom. Love from us.”Â
The color bursts and quick movements are eye-catching and complimentary to the sonic ebbs and flows of the song. “Chivalry Is Not Dead” is from the band’s Mood Valiant album that came out during the summer.
