German electro-rock veterans the Notwist are returning with their ninth LP, Close to the Glass, and have shared a video from the record. Directed by London-based creative Yu Sato, the clip for "Kong" features illustrations by Tim Divall, and tells a story pulled from the childhood of lead singer Marcus Acher.
According to the press release, the video "is based on a true story that involved Marcus Acher and his family being trapped in their home during an Ammer River flood in Weilheim, Germany. During the experience, the young Acher resorted to fantasy, secretly hoping a superhero would save his family as the waters rose around them."
Close to the Glass is out February 25 in the US via Sub Pop.
