Soiled Projectors have been on a tear previously couple years, after not having launched a brand new album since 2012. Final yr, they dropped their self-titled seventh album, and now they’re readying their eighth album, Lamp Lit Prose, for launch in July. At the moment, they’ve shared a video for “That’s A Way of life,” a punchy a soulful indie-folk-rock monitor that’s accompanied by a peculiar and fascinating video.
The hand-drawn video options photographs impressed by historic Greek tradition and mythology, and to accompany the clip, Soiled Projectors additionally posted a Q&A between the band’s David Longstreth and video director Kitty Faingold. In it, Faingold talks about her imaginative and prescient for the video:
The story is that we, the viewers, are a spectral being hovering above a lake in entrance of an odd home that has infinite rooms. We float in via a window and resolve to take a fast disembodied tour of the home that’s inhabited by a bunch of enchanted statues which some unusual electrical life drive has animated for all eternity. They’re the eerie marble remnants of an extinct civilization, lengthy annihilated, the silent survivors of a by-gone atomic finish time. Like dancing shadows burnt right into a wall by a nuclear blast. It’s tragic but in addition surprisingly optimistic – one thing survived, maybe on the finish of the world, human consciousness liberated of its materials constraints, unfold at mild velocity all through the universe, and fuzzy bundles of reminiscence, thought and emotion seeped into inert matter in distant galaxies and parallel universes, creating the world portrayed on this animation.
The video is an imagined consequence of the story that’s sung within the music, which as I interpret it, is a few society on the cusp of destruction, looking from itself into its previous and its future and questioning will we survive? or will the monster eat its younger til they’re gone.
