The latest from Scattered Clouds. Watch the video for their song “The First Empire” via the Decoder premiere or at Youtube below!
Set in a near post-apocalyptic dystopian future, the video for the sixth and last track of Scattered Clouds’ debut album explores themes of colonialism, death, revenge and supernatural powers. The 7min short film evokes the cinematic curve and industrial rhythm of ‘The First Empire’. It was cut and edited from scenes of Norman D. Wells’ 1967 sci-fi movie “Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women” (also known as the Soviet movie “Planeta Bur”) by multi-disciplinary artist, HILOTRONS frontman, and band member Mike Dubue.
