Storm Corrosion's "Drag Ropes" video is impressive as hell - a perfect complement to the melancholy, somewhat creepy song, and an ideal introduction to the band's unique sound. In the video above, Mikael Åkerfeldt and animator Jess Cope, who made the video, discuss it from their individual perspectives. He talks about what inspired the clip for him and creative partner Steven Wilson, and she discusses the actual mechanics of making it. There are even some behind-the-scenes photos. Enjoy!
