Video: BRAVESTATION – Signs Of The Civilized

May 23, 2012

Bandcamp / Facebook / Twitter

Riding off the recent releases of tracks Signs Of The Civilized (an iM favourite), and last week’s Tides Of The Summit, Toronto self-professed “tribal-pop” outfit BRAVESTATION have now released the official video for the former track – the lead single off their upcoming debut LP Giants & Dreamers.

Funded through an Indiegogo campaign by some of their devoted fans and supporters, the video was directed by Adrian Vieni & Derek Wilson of Wood & Wires Productions.

Continuing with the band’s affinity for all things tribal (first the musical genre classification, and recently naming their street team “the tribe”), the video invokes some of the themes prominent in Signs Of The Civilized, including the quest for eternal youth, under the premise of a group of high-society twenty-somethings taking part in a series of ritualistic acts during a social gathering – check it out below.
