An alien from outer space, an injured bride, an amputee-hipster and zombie army soldier make up some of the fascinating mismatch of characters symbolising society in Many Things’ video for new single ‘Holy Fire’.
Premiered by Clash Magazine, the apocalyptic clip is set in a postindustrial dystopian wasteland and was filmed in Amsterdam under the guidance of director Simon Green (XX Teens).
Many Thing’s Macks Faulkron explains “The idea began with the birth of the gold alien coming to earth to preach the lyrics of ‘Holy Fire’. It came to life after many long chats with Simon and from our wacky imaginations and enjoyment of playing around with music and image”.
A barrage of electro sounds, driving percussion and call-and-response chants, ‘Holy Fire’ was inspired by Jon Hopkins’ notion of envisioning mixes as 3D shapes in infinite environments. The single is the first taste of their much-anticipated debut album “Burn Together” to be released in 2015 via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia.
Many Thing’s forthcoming debut album “Burn Together” follows last year’s ‘What We Are’ EP which featured the tracks ‘Chains’ – selected as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ – [WATCH HERE]; ‘Incredible’ [WATCH HERE]; ‘What We Are’ [WATCH HERE], ‘Gone’ and ‘Dear One’.
