Dead Posey have released a video for their new single Parasite, taken from their recently released EP Malfunction.
“Music videos and the visual medium are such an important aspect to Dead Posey that we were crushed when hit with the reality that, due to the state of the world, we would be unable to shoot all the music videos we intended for our EP, Malfunction,” explains Danyell Souza. “However, a few months ago we did a day of filming some video content and did a few takes of performing our song Parasite while we were at it. Thanks to that day of shooting using our manager’s camera, we had enough raw footage that we were able to edit it ourselves in iMovie & Final Cut and turn it into the official music video for Parasite.”
“Given how everything has been the last few months we were required to do everything with this video completely in-house, when we had originally planned on working with directors and other professionals for our videos,” she adds. “We set up a whole day of shooting, bought all the props and staged the set, rented the location and arranged lighting & camera angles (special thanks to our digital marketing manager Paul Crary for working with us on the shooting day and letting us really hone in on our vision). We are used to doing most everything ourselves with our music anyways – writing, recording, producing, mixing, mastering – so this wasn’t new to us in that regard. Art is created in all types of situations; in this case it was a happy accident that we could concoct a music video on a shoestring budget out of this footage. We hope you enjoy it!”
