Cheerful electronica quartet are entering a darker realm with their newly released music video for ‘In Mindibu’. The band will be releasing a trilogy of cinematic videos which follow the timeless tale of a lost wanderer facing terrifying odds. The first of the trilogy of the videos was for their ‘Wintergreen’ single and introduced us to the mystifying characters. The video ends with the protagonist being lifted towards the sky: whether to or from salvation remains to be seen.
Unexpectedly, the video for ‘In Mindibu’ opens deep beneath the surface of the earth in a seemingly endless cavern of tunnels leading to the unknown. The inexplicably blindfolded protagonist must find his way through the writhing bodies and into the light. Stavroz have managed to create their own little fictional world with the creation of these two videos. Consider us on the hook and counting down the hours until the release of their last one that completes the cycle.
The band tell us about the trilogy: “Our trilogy of videos are based on the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice which has been brought to Mindibu, the world of Stavroz. As Orpheus sets off on his journey to save his love from the underworld, he is joined by Mindibu’s creatures. Uncertain of what lies ahead, he bravely soldiers on, guided by a sinister yet sensual and melancholic soundtrack.”
