You thought the day of the bombastic, big budget video were gone? Well think again, the marvelous Joe Slatter over at The Dark Power has produced a stunning, tongue in cheek and mildly disturbing video (big budget may be pushing it) for the first song from Tom Slatter’s new album.
‘Some of the Creatures Have Broken the Locks on the Door to Lab 558′ is taken from ‘Fit the Fourth’ released on 1/6/015 through those excellent chaps (sic) at Bad Elephant Music.
Tom describes his output as:
“the sort of music you’d get if Genesis started writing songs with Nick Cave after watching too much Dr Who.”
Bad Elephant Music’s press release stated:
“Tom weaves complex and fantastical stories throughout his music – and this new album is no different.
“Dark deeds and dangerous characters litter the narrative, including the continuing tale of Seven Bells John and the vivid steampunk world he inhabits.
“The character, who’s been interwoven since debut album ‘Spinning The Compass’, comes full circle in ‘Fit The Fourth‘, with his eventual fate revealed in 20-minute epic ‘Seven Bells Redeemed’.”
