Video: THE LUYAS – Moodslayer
Montreal rock quartet The Luyas have been a busy bunch – after their numerous festival appearance throughout 2011, alongside the release of their second full-length Too Beautiful to Work, the band just dropped a new video for their latest single Moodslayer – a song allegedly written about the causes of a close friend’s anxieties and admirations as they dealt with their first schizophrenic hallucinations.
Directed by Derrick Belcham, the video is made up of hand-made paper animation machines and crystals that alternate with a variety of light sources and an assortment of glass geometry to play with light and shadow.
Most of the objects were attached to a spinning record player and shot with a modified digital camcorder that contrasts the psychologically “real” and “unreal” apparitions witnessed by the song’s protagonist… trippy – check it out in the embed below.
In other news, with the recent amicable departure of six-year group veteran drummer Stefan Schneider, and his replacement with newcomer Bucky Wheaton earlier this week, THE LUYAS are set to hit the studio to record their next album in February.
