Outlands – “Com Ocean (Mirror Kisses ‘Bad Dream’ Remix)” (Official Video)
Virginia’s Outlands are responsible for a track that’s taken on a life of its own this year. “Com Ocean” is of such resplendence it’s invited tons of artists to offer their own interpretations of the original. A remix EP, featuring contributions from by Sacred Animals, Mirror Kisses, Heat Stroke, TEXTBEAK, DEFA, and Tokyo Hands, is out on the 20th of November on the pair’s bandcamp as a free download.
We’ve got the premiere of the video for Mirror Kisses’ stunning ‘Bad Dream’ remix. Directed by Synesthesiae films, it’s a harrowing sequence of patterns and glimpses of reality, like something out of a beautiful nightmare.
Synesthesiae had this to say about the vid:
I was determined to put together something that visually did their remix justice. I was trying to use visuals that touch on themes like the nightmares you could`ve had as a child. things like spontaneous levitation and shifting of environment, or darker themes like people you know, who would never hurt you in real life, hurting and strangling you or killing you…Dreams that you can explain no other way than as just ‘out of place’. A scream you may hear in the micro-second between dreaming and waking in the night and makes you momentarily question:”did I just hear that in my dream, or real life?”
