Vid Pick: They Might Be Giants “Cloisonne”

They Might Be Giants have unveiled their latest for the song “Cloisonne.”

Directed by TMBG’s own John Flansburgh, produced by Amy Hobby and edited by Tony Zajkowski, with photography direction by Luke Geissbuhler, the video, shot in blue light,  is a pretty straightforward performance clip that’s given a quirky edge thanks to circular and close up camera shots and editing tricks. The giant head shots of  turn-of-the-century newspaper editor and Progressive movement leader William Allen White are also a nice touch.

The band is also on tour, with a performance at Cincinnati’s Southgate House tonight. View the rest of the tour dates and the “Cloisonne” video below.
