Soda Blonde share cinematic new video for ‘Swimming Through The Night’

“We were inspired by the films of Jean Cocteau, Hayao Miyazaki and Stanley Kubrick in finding the story’s visual language.”

 

Back in March Little Green Cars, after over a decade making music together, announced that they had “come to the end of the road”.

“There has been no terrible calamity, no heartless betrayal and no punches thrown,” they explained at the time. “Rather, this simply feels like the right things for us, both personally and artistically.”

Shortly after, four of the members announced they’d be starting a new project, drumming up hype by making an appearance on The Late Late Show to perform their debut single ‘Swimming Through The Night’, closing out the District Magazine stage at Forbidden Fruit to a packed out stage, and now they have a new video for their debut single.

“‘Swimming Through The Night’ was filmed over the course of three nights. We had no budget, but through the immense talent, effort and love of some close friends we’ve created a video that we are very proud to share with you. We were inspired by the films of Jean Cocteau, Hayao Miyazaki and Stanley Kubrick in finding the story’s visual language. We invite you, the viewer, to draw your own interpretation of its meaning.”
