Detroit post punk quartet Protomartyr have shared the new Yoonha Park directed video for ‘Don’t Go To Anacita’ the third single from their recently released album Relatives In Descent. Watch the partially animated clip below inspired equally by the symbolism of Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Stairway to Lenin and R.E.M.’s ‘Imitation of Life’ clip. According to Park;
“I wanted to make a visual that recreated the feeling of scanning over a large, densely populated image, like a Breughel painting or Where’s Waldo?. I wanted to convey a feeling of false progress and the idea that every new horror that meets us is part of a never-ending continuum. Joe Casey’s lyrics are chock full of references both contemporary and classical, often in the same song. It creates a really unique visual field that conveys the exact flavor of dread I find myself feeling a lot lately.”
