The Elkcloner's debut single, Crossfire, is available as a free download and is taken from the self-titled debut album, which will be released digitally on February 28th, 2012.
The unique and clever video for Crossfire involved several months of photographing hundreds of cassette tapes on a studio floor, with an awful lot of time spent on moving them around into different positions and angles. The result is a stunning stop motion animation, set to the vocals of Rose Colella.
The Elkcloner is the project of the acclaimed Serbian composer Filip Mitrovic. Although the name might sound unfamiliar, the list of films and TV shows will not be: Resident Evil: Afterlife; True Blood; Lockup and The Echo are just a few of the numerous films and programmes he has composed for.
His eponymous album is also distinctive in the fact that there are no samples - the tracks are all from Filip's mind. He has adapted the works of Joseph Ceravolo into lyrics for the songs Coyote Song and Crossfire, while Annabel Lee was written by Edgar Allen Poe. It's not just poets that have somewhat contributed to the album - the lyrics to Sunbird were written by an eleven year old child.
