Orsome Welles have just unveiled another music video, this time for the track 'Father's Eyes'. The track comes from their upcoming EP Rise, which will be released by Melbournes progressive heavy music act on May 26.
The video takes you deep into the Australian bush, abandoning you to look after yourself. With mind bending lighting and brilliant performances, the video sets up the band as a troop of woodsmen under the oppression of a foolish ringleader, who ultimately turn on their boss with ritualistic torment, mirroring the creepiness found in Hollywood’s greatest thrillers.
Frontman Michael Stowers comments: "'Father’s Eyes' is a powerful and punchy exploration of patriarchal loyalty and freedom. I always have an overwhelming feeling of hazardous abandonment whilst singing this song, kind of like watching a young bird take flight for the first time. I love the rapid undulations blended with authoritative flow that underpin the music.’'
The video clip was directed by Adrian Goleby, who has previously worked with Caligula’s Horse, Devin Townsend, and The Ocean, among others .
