Who doesn’t love punk rock from the Southern Hemisphere? The Brazilian pop-punk unit, Backdrop Falls, has an unnerving new music video out set to the single, “My Own Remains”. “My Own Remains” appears on their fresh cut album There’s No Such Place as Home, already streaming on major digital platforms, courtesy of Electric Funeral Records based out of South America. Digipaks and cassettes will become available for worldwide release this week through ten – that’s right, TEN – distributors (Count them!). That’s: Electric Funeral Records (Brazil), Geenger Records (Croatia), Duff Records (Italy), 20 Chords Records (Spain), Infected Records (Portugal), Bomber Music (UK), Razor Records (Argentina), Audioslam (Chile), Mevzu Records (Turkey) and Dinamite Records (USA).
The video takes an unsettling look at the claustrophobic and transmorphic daze of early-twentiesdom, where we all bury off our past selves and settle with the ground in our own remains. Stream “My Own Remains” below.
From the band:
“Directed by the drummer Roger Capone, the music video presents two different universes colliding: real and unreal. The plot develops as singer is apparently buried alive while the band try to dig him up and rescue him. The idea is [the singer] is not in fact buried in a coffin underground, but under the delusion of it, somewhere between reality and some sort of nightmare, trapped in his own mind.
With its atmosphere inspired by classic ‘50s/’60s horror movies, the video was made in collaboration with artist Raoni Volker (Hug Your Chaos), who was responsible for designing the artwork of the album “There’s no such place as home”. Volker’s gothic -like artwork sets the mood for Collyer’s delusional thoughts, following the same black & white kind of environment that the band has been adopting for the first set of music videos.”
Of recent, Backdrop Falls has played with such acts as Sum 41, Face to Face, and Against Me!, toured Brazil, and played in major Brazilian festivals.
