Traktorkestar requested an animated music video to promote their 2016 album “Deafening Lullabies. According to the band, the song is a dark-romantic Peter Pan drama for adults. A song about the destructive power of love, about people who are too fragile for a life outside of Neverland – and on the volatility of happiness.
The music video tells an urbanized and bohemian version of the Peter Pan fairytale, where instead of Wendy, there’s a model suicide girl. Neverland is Gentrified, the Fairy is a cabaret prostitute and the magic dust gets you high and then terribly down.
