"MOLE", the brand new official video from Dear Reader's 'Idealistic Animals', is a dreamy journey through the stages of a love affair, from the first touch of hands, to the first dance, to the first kiss, to the altar.

The video premiered internationally today, led by Clash Music and Tape.TV -- more info after the jump, but you can watch the whole video right here via YouTube: 

Echoing the 'tunnel' in which, in the song's lyrics, the eponymous mole collides blindly with his lover, Cherilyn MacNeil floats passively through the winding tunnels of a nightclub, surrounded by mementoes of the past and unknown lovers in various stages of intimacy.

Shot by Rob Savage, prodigious filmmaker and avid Dear Reader fan, and produced by Ben Burdock, in London in mid-April 2012, the film boasts a cast and crew of 50, and it was shot in only two takes.... a round of applause please!!

Dear Reader will be concluding their summer tour with the German dates below - see our tourdates section for more details!
