The official new music video for “By Swallow Season”.
From the EP that was released last year as a double 7inch and digitally, and recently re-released as a 12inch on RSD overseas, following the music video for “Obscure Nightclub”, the video for “By Swallow Season” has been completed.
Direction, filming, editing were done by Kensuke Ide who is also a musician himself. Once again, the video was filmed in Super 8mm film.
The first video, “Obscure Nightclub”, depicted images of Sakamoto gazing at the lost visions of the nightlife. The second video “By Swallow Season” films masked Sakamoto wandering around the cities of Tokyo in the daylight.
The contrast of the day and night and the textures of Ide’s 8mm film perfectly illustrates the images of the songs made under the pandemic.
