Debut Breakout Video
EP Out Summer 2018
Watch“Strokes of the Brush”
Hailing from Hamburg, Germany, Empala makes their U.S. breakout debut today with the release of their first music video for their single “Strokes of the Brush.”
Wrapped in a robe of bleak fog, the song’s will to escape opacity is noticeable from the beginning. It hits the winding road at the junction between wacky spherical instrumentation and hopeful orgastic discharges in the end. Somewhere, through the scape of mystic choirs, prominent guitars and a shiny storyteller, you may find good traveling company for while watching this beautiful artsy video.
Speaking to how this visually compelling video came together, member Marcus Schneider says it could not have been achieved without the unique eyes of Naëma Faika and Clemens Barth.
“The visual complement to this song was created in close collaboration between Naëma Faika (story and performance) and Clemens Barth (camera and technical realization). Both equipped with the gift to capture slow and cautious storytelling, they realized an own interpretation with unique strong pictures of the songs heart.”
Keep your eyes peeled for Empala’s first EP due out summer 2018.
