Melbourne singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett shared the video for “Dead Fox,” a track off her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit, released via Mom+Pop music earlier this year. The animated clip takes on “corporate greed and big business and the impact these corporations have on our lives in particular the way they influence what we eat and how we get our groceries into our fridges.” 

“We liked how politically loaded and conversational the lyrics are,” directors Rory Kerr and Paul Ruttledge explain in a press release. “We wanted the animation to have a stylistic and organic look, hence most of the drawings were done on paper rather than digitally. To further compliment the lyrics, we thought it would be funny to have the animals in the video look as cynical as possible, as if they’d had enough with how humans are treating them.”
