Empathy Test‘s single Monsters, reviewed here last month, is a statuesque, cinematic synth blast: anthemic and haunting – and it is fitting that the band has released an incredible video to accompany the single.
Directed by Calum Macdiarmid and funded by fans, it is a stunning visual piece that perfectly matches the mystery and awe of the song, touched by horror and foreboding – visceral and raw – and yet a with a concluding sense of inherent optimism. It is no wonder it has been nominated for a Berlin Music Video Award:
The single is available through all the usual download/streaming sites.
The single is the title track off the band’s forthcoming album and you can find out more about the album and support it here – the band is fiercely independent and has set up a crowd-funding process to develop the album.
