Hardcore punk rock band Death Koolaid released their music video for their song “Emmeline” back in April and you can check it out below! The song comes off of the band’s upcoming Death Koolaid Vol. 2 that is set to be released in July. The London band will have their first album available on their Bandcamp for free until Vol. 2 is released.
“We wanted to do a performance video but hate performance videos. We wanted to stay away from that classic good looking, fancy lighting, slick style performance video we so often see too much of. So we came up with this idea. We wanted it to create motion sickness, headaches, and dizziness. We also did it on a tiny budget, with just the director, the DP and us all crammed into a tiny room. Not only that, we thought to make it more intense for us, we put a time limit on the shoots duration to three hours. Get in, go mental and get out. Pretty much our mentality squeezed into the whole experience and visuals. We use a homemade camera rig for many of shots as nothing out there could achieve the look we wanted. The song is also bonkers, so it all came together quite well.” –Death Koolaid
