To celebrate the release of the new Infadels studio album "The Future of the Gravity Boy” on the No More Clones label, the opening track "From Out Of The Black Sky has just had a video made for it.
The official video for “From Out Of The Black Sky” was shot on a boiling few days in the Kent desert and directed by Dutch film maker Viola Groenhart.

Filmaker Viola Groenhart’s short films are sober and poetic, with a particular emphasis on visual detail and a refined use of cinematography and this is demonstrated in the fine video made for the Infadels.
The album title is a metaphor for the band’s constant obsession with man vs machine, progress vs history and computers vs guitars. And With Alex Metric on production duties, Infadel’s third studio album pushes the band’s musical boundaries, expanding on the dance sound of their previous albums with the band wrestling unpredictable analog synths and effects to create an atmosphere of humans at war with the flashing, beeping machines around them. Couple this with the bands laser firing, euphoric yet chilling future world vision and you have ‘The Future of the Gravity Boy’.
First single ‘From Out Of The Black Sky’ is The Infadels story in a nutshell; when all around you everything is falling down it means there’s a chance to create something new and beautiful. The other tracks on the album tackle themes of space (Jupiter 5), love of music (Violent Oblivion), relationships (We Get Along) and even metaphors for being ignored (Ghosts), all of this backed with the sound and a vision befitting of the times resulting with an album that is uplifting and macabre in equal measure, The Infadels return to shake up the musical landscape once more.
‘The Future Of The Gravity Boy deserves to bring the band to a bigger audience’
‘A fine offering of upbeat and punchy electro – pop’
‘The new album is great. It’s a loud, noisey, in-your-face heady broth of indie and electro.’
