After their stunning debut release A Winged Victory For The Sullen reveal their first official music video
As announced by Drowned In Sound, A Winged Victory For The Sullen reveal their first official music video ahead of the Erased Tapes 5th Anniversary Tour which will see them perform with label mates Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and Anne Müller.
Directed by Christopher Hewitt, the clip forms the perfect visual counterpart to their debut album track ‘Requiem For The Static King Part One’ and Adam explains how it came to be:
“We started investigating video ideas with many different directors as early as April 2011, to no avail, except for blowing currency on apocryphal hopes. Mr. Hewitt delivered us a storyboard idea around the first week of October last year, and it was well worth the wait. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by people like him, and the team at Knucklehead Films. In the end we have inspired each other, and I can only hope we will work together again before I check out of this place….”
