Brisbane four-piece Flynn Effect today give fans a dark and brooding visual accompaniment to their single “Fade”! Taken from their sophomore album Obsidian (due out this August 4th), “Fade” is a evocative and tonally gorgeous tune that has highlighted the band’s talent as a writing and musical unit. As an insight into what Obsidian is set to boast, “Fade” is a prime example and an exciting one at that.
The film clip, directed, shot and edited by the crew at Third Eye Visuals, comes layered in theatre and dark drama, something which vocalist Tomina Vincent acknowledges as being completely deliberate.
“We wanted the film clip to be a sort of opposite to the song. Its a very hopeful and upbeat track, but we wanted to add a little bit of darkness and theatre to it – its what we love and basically what Flynn Effect is all about. It was filmed it over 12 hours in freezing cold, lights exploded, the fire brigade almost fined us. There were unplanned explosions, bruises, we couldn’t wash the fake blood off for days, I nearly fainted several times, but It was a lot of fun!”
Along with this exclusive premiere, we’re stoked to announce Flynn Effect’s Obsidian tour, scheduled for August. Taking to the east coast, the band will hit venues in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne with a slew of impressive support acts.
