case/lang/veirs, a group consisting of the all-star singer-songwriters Neko Case, K.D. Lang and Laura Veirs, have delivered visuals for their lead single, “Atomic Number”, from their first album together. The animated clip was put together by director, Kangmin Kim.
“Atomic Number” begins with earnest acoustic guitar, with deep, yet light, drums. All voices combine for an airy and relaxing listening experience. A middle section with strings very much furthers this effect.
The video itself is cartoon style, though very much in the minimalist sense. Or, judging by the track title, a mathematical effort, the animation very shapes orientated. It basically seems to endeavour to convey a love story in which both halves are the same “Atomic Number”.
