Menace Beach share visuals for new album title track 'Black Rainbow Sound'
With new album 'Black Rainbow Sound' due on August 31 via Memphis Industries, Leeds-based Menace Beach are sharing the video for the lead single, which features the vocals of Brix Smith.
"It was created by Sara Serna who is a collage animator, graphic artist and musician living in Medellin, Columbia," says the band's Liza Violet. "We've been chatting about doing a collaboration for a while after we got friendly via Instagram. I love that she seems to get a lot of imagery from her local area and a lot of her artwork seems to touch on her country's past and present political and social history."
Director Sara Serna added: "Each part of the video was designed and animated in cut out style, handmade and lo fi combined. The idea was to create a chaos of paper, using plants and dark animals, along with some details of the band in between."
