MAMMÚT unveil new video for ‘Blood Burst’
Earlier this month Icelandic quintet MAMMÚT released their new EP ‘River’s End’ via Bella Union and we are very pleased to share with you the video for the single ‘Blood Burst’. Directed by long-time collaborator Sunneva Ása Weisshappel, the video is “both playful, beautiful and colorful, as well as being misleading, disgusting and weird” as the band flip between different situations from a tropical blood party in the snow to inflatable jacuzzi.
From Sunneva Ása Weisshappel
“The video visualizes the lyrics content and tries to capture the emotions contained in the song. My interpretation of the songs subject is the animalistic nature of man. What we hide, what we cover and a spectacle that is a combination of poetry, illusions and contrasts.”
We were placed in a inflatable jacuzzi to play in sheep’s blood, so we did. We were placed in situations to react to them. Having worked intensely, both professionally and personally with director Sunneva Ása Weisshappel there were no boundaries nor questioning on set. There was a rhythm of flow as a result of artistic trust.
The band have also announced a show on September 2nd at the Sebright Arms. TICKETS HERE.
