Mixtape Club presents the official music video for Yeasayer's "Wait For The Summer". Inspired by Yeasayer's polyphonic harmony and tribal sound, this video follows migrating beetles, cosmic apple orbits, and primal spirits through the cycles of the planets and seasons.
The single was released via We Are Free on 10 March 2008 (digital) and 17 March 2008 (limited-edition 7"). The original track can be found on the band's 2007 release All Hour Cymbals.
"Wait For The Summer" has been selected for official competition in SXSW 2009, NEMO, 2008 Bitfilm Festival, and Animation Block Party 2008 Summerfest. It is also listed as one of the Best Music Videos of 2008 by Spin Magazine, Pitchfork Media, The Tripwire, SproutBlog, and VH1's Best Week Ever.
