Casper Skulls have shared a new video for “Colour Of Skulls”, the latest from their critically acclaimed new record Mercy Works.
“Colour Of Outside” is a dynamic video matches the song’s imagery of a dystopian future, one of “a feeling of helplessness and anxiety” says guitarist and co-frontperson Neil Bednis.
“Lyrically ‘Colour of the Outside’ was a real collaborative effort between Melanie and I,” Bednis told BrooklynVegan. “Once we actually started performing the song we realized that the song more so depicts the time we’re living in now.
Bednis explained further:
“The video for the song was completely Shawn Kosmerly’s brainchild. We drove up to our hometown in Sudbury, ON and filmed the video in the basement of a copying center. Shawn reflected how we wrote the song by having the first half being shot in what appears to be some sort of weird room and then cutting to the reality in which we’re just in a warehouse. He did a bunch of cool things like the first shot which is a curtain filmed super close up with weird lighting or in the bridge taking a piece of broken glass and passing it in front of a mirror creating a cool split screen/moving motion.“
