VIDEO NEWS: VOLA Release Animated Video For New Single ‘Alien Shivers’
VOLA have released an animated video for their new single Alien Shivers, taken from their forthcoming album Applause Of A Distant Crowd.
The video was created by bassist Nicolai Mogensen and Anne Nørkjær Bang.
“The storyline of the video is loosely inspired by a short story by the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges called The Circular Ruins (1940) in which a mysterious, anonymous man set himself on a task to dream a human being and make it come to life,” they explain. “We think it somehow relates quite well to the lyrics Asger created for the song, even though we did not intend to make a video that ‘explains’ or picturise the lyrics in any way. Another great inspiration is Yuri Norsteins beautiful film Tale of Tales (1979), which sparked our fascination for stop motion animation in the first place.”
Applause Of A Distant Crowd is due for release on the 12th October via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.
