Norway band Einar Stray Orchestra bring their brand of exquisite indie pop back with their new album 'Politricks', out now through Berlin label Sinnbus. The fivesome have now unveiled a video for the album's title song.
Dressed up as some kind of black-robed preachers with white eyes and black make up, the video for 'Politricks' is full of creepy, ritualistic, cult imagery hinting at the world around them. It's an unsettling visual, that matches the unnervingly rhythmic drums, melancholy and orchestral melody, and the telling, poetic lyrics about disillusionment and the propaganda of the modern world.
The band; who are cellist/ vocalist Ofelia Østrem Ossum, bassist/ vocalist Simen Aasen, drummer/ vocalist Lars Fremmerlid, violinst/ vocalist Åsa Ree and, of course, pianist/ vocalist Einar Stray; were previously just dubbed Einar Stray for the release of their debut album 'Chiaroscuro' back in 2011. It received worldwide acclaim and landed them with a variety of musical festival opportunities. Now re-named as the Einar Stray Orchestra, this year they've been touring all around Europe, including one date in the UK, with a string of dates still to come throughout October 2014 including in Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. There's certainly more to come from this unique collective - keep an eye out.
