Rocky VotolatoRocky Votolato has premiered a new music video for the song “Hospital Handshake.”  The track appaears on his latest full length of the same name, availabel now on No Sleep Records.  The video was directed by Sloane White.  Votolate describes his enthusiasm:

“I’ve always wanted to make a stop animation video and this was such a fun process of experimentation and creative collaboration… Sloane Alexandra White is an incredibly talented young director from Portland and a creative force of ideas and inspiration. I was drawn to her work with shadow puppets and think she did a great job of capturing a creepy haunted darkness to visually accompany the themes and vibe of the song.”
