Premiere: Womb Share Kaleidoscopic Video 'Satellite'

Thursday 18th October, 2018 10:39AM

Wellington psychedelic trio Womb have unveiled a hallucinatory clip for their song 'Satellite', drawn from this year's sublime debut album Like Splitting The Head From The Body. The team of Charlotte Forrester, Haz Forrester, and Georgette Brown's new visual creation made in collaboration with Laura Duffy complements the single's dreamlike sonics with a kaleidoscopic blend of soft sculpture and digitally rendered imagery, with Forrester and Wishes Falcon's bodies interacting with the otherworldly virtual spaces materialised in the video. The group shared some of the ideas surrounding their latest work...

"We actually started making this music video a couple of years ago, using a soft sculpture Georgette and Haz had made, and a sheet of reflective material salvaged from the dump. We shot it all on a phone one afternoon, getting some aerial shots from a second storey window at Georgette's flat at the time. After we shot it, the footage just kind of sat around for a while, and we weren't sure what to do with it. We were so lucky to have Laura come along and breathe new life into it, rendering parts of the footage from two dimensions to three, allowing the world of the video to mirror, to flip in on itself, and to mutate. In the end, the video has become a play with distance and intimacy in a world where satellites are a mediating vessel, where romance is intertwined with the digital."

You can catch Womb playing with ONONO at the free Curious Creatures After Dark event at Wellington's Toi Art at Te Papa on Saturday 27th October - Halloween costumes are encouraged.

'Like Splitting The Head From The Body' is out now via Sonorous Circle & Arcade Recordings.
