We’re pleased to bring you the premier eof Thot’s new music video for their song “ODRA” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Fleuve, which is scheduled to be released through Weyrd Son Records on October 20th.
“ODRA” is available on Spotify/Deezer/iTunes and can be download via Bandcamp, including separated stems of the track for those who wanna remix it.
“Since I’ve directed several movies, music videos and tried underwater shootings, I wanted to go further with submarine screenplays, where everything can be slow, strange, undefined…” explains French director Arthur Shelton. “When Grégoire Fray contacted me with a story in mind and offered me to direct this music video for his band Thot, that was the opportunity I was waiting for. Then, it has been a great challenge to gather pictural ideas and follow the journey of this mysterious woman through the darkness of the abysses. We spent a whole and intense day of shooting in a 5 meters deep pool, followed by several days of editing and post-production in order to get this fierce result.”
After the epic video of “Icauna” (watch below), Belgian outfit Thot continues unveiling its upcoming album Fleuve with “ODRA”, thanks to a dark and submersible music video directed by the French artist Arthur Shelton. While the name refers to the river flowing from Czech Republic to Poland and Germany, the band goes harder, starting from a groovy mix of analog bass and roomy drums, and turning into a cinematic tornado as soon as the guitar kicks in. The end turns out to be the most brutal part they ever wrote, as the song refers to tough (but essential) moults everyone can experience in their life.
Fleuve was produced by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna).
