Cellar Darling have shared a video for their new song “Dance.” The eleven minute track is based on the mysterious dancing plague of 1518.
Anna Murphy comments on the Olivier Tambosi-directed video:
“My wish was for the audience to feel unwell while watching it. Equally important was that it wouldn’t just be senseless brutality.” It takes a lot to release a film like this. An urgent film that draws on classical motifs as much as it exudes zeitgeist, a bleak metaphor for life that is sometimes just as bleak, for the end of all things. “The prevention of dance is at the heart of the video,” Anna explains, adding, “In the song, we pick up on the dancing plague of 1518, when people mysteriously danced themselves to death. That, mixed with thoughts about our modern world and how we treat ourselves and our environment.”
