Video: Jihae - Fig Leaf

NY's Jihae ("jee-heh") make beautiful soft hazey dream pop. "Fig Leaf" is off of Elvis Is Still Alive and the video is such a refreshing change from all of the usual grainy Super 8 footage, be it authentically retro or not. It's nothing fancy, but the black silhouette paper cut out puppets put against solid colored backgrounds really works for me. As it does for the music as well. My favorite part is the jester acrobats performing for the royalty. It's pretty great stuff. A+ Jihae.
