Neil & Liam Finn Share Legendary Video 'Back To Life'

Wednesday 20th June, 2018 8:00AM

New Zealand pop icons Neil & Liam Finn caused a stir with the announcement of their first ever collaborative record Lightsleeper and its lead single 'Back To Life' earlier this month, and have now raised the curtain on a theatrical video for that song directed by Sam Kristofski. The stylised clip references the ancient Greek tale of Orpheus, a romantically inclined lad who sadly paid a violent price in his quest to defy death in the name of love. The video features a cast of family and friends and there's definitely some familiar faces gracing the stage, including Australian pop provocateur Kirin J. Callinan, Mac DeMarco and Connan MockasinLightsleeper is out in August, featuring guest contributions by Mick Fleetwood, Sharon Finn, Elroy Finn and more. The father and son duo shared a few words about their latest creation...

“We spent three hours on a Sunday afternoon dressing up and posing with some of our friends, mere mortals applying the greasepaint to escape our earthly chains... Behold, a little piece of theatre representing the way we try to summon up the gods of our songs, like Orpheus - challenging them to bring life to those loved ones who have departed. But alas, the gods seem listless and unconcerned, trapped in their own cycles of drama and intrigue.”

'Lightsleeper' is out Friday 24th August via Inertia Music.
