Belgian indie band Geppetto and the Whales unveil a beautiful animated video for their debut single '1814', which has been released this December alongside the B-side 'Heads'. The track appears on their first album 'Heads Of Woe', out now on Warner Music.
The video features an animated figure walking across an ever-changing artistic backdrop featuring images of animals and countryside, depicting a journey that comes to an end when the figure is apparently greeted by a loved one. According to band member Sander Sterkens, the song - which in itself is a gorgeous, dreamy love ballad - depicts the story of a POW in the Napoleonic war who was captured in Russie and subsequently escaped, walking 7000 miles to get back home. 'The way he describes the feeling of coming home after so many years is what we've tried to capture with this song', says Sterkens.
Geppetto and the Whales have finally unveiled their long-awaited debut album after 2012's success at Humo's Rock Rally in Belgium and their subsequent, highly acclaimed first EP 'People Of Galicove'. The band have recently been touring around the UK, with upcoming dates including London's Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen and a January 2015 date back in Belgium.
