The Beths Unveil Video For 'Mars, The God Of War'

The Beths Unveil Video For 'Mars, The God Of War'

The Beths have revealed an action-packed suspense / spy thriller set amongst the constantly "under construction" rubble of 2020 Tāmaki Makaurau, for their zippy Jump Rope Gazers track 'Mars, The God Of War'. Directed by Sports Team (who seem to have a new video out every other week at the moment) and created with the support of NZ On Air, Liz Stokes, Jonathan Pearce and the gang look supremely stylish in the edge-of-your seat clip, making plans in derelict office spaces, pulling the ol' switcheroo and giving chase in pursuit of mysterious cargo. My favourite bit is probably where bassist Ben Sinclair emerges from the Hauraki Gulf in scuba outfit and changes into a full James Bond-like suit with bow tie. Stokes lifted the lid on the making of the visuals for 'Mars, The God Of War' and their forthcoming all ages headline event at Auckland Town Hall with Disciple Pati and Mermaidens...

"We spent one frantic day trying to exhaust every gag we could. Tristan and Callum constructed a hood-mounted camera rig for the getaway car, Jon snuck into a server room for a ‘hacking’ shot, Ben lost a deep-sea diving flipper to the Ponsonby Wharf, and Annabel found a real-live pigeon for me to release from the rooftops of Karangahape Road.

It’s been incredibly great playing this song out on tour and hearing people singing along. We can’t wait to play it nice n loud at the Auckland Town Hall on Nov 6th.

And if you can’t make it to that show in person… then Surprise no. 2 will be great news for you..."

'Jump Rope Gazers' is out now on vinyl LP, CD and digitally via Carpark Records.
