Canada-based two-piece Strange & Primitive unveil an unusual video for their song 'Difficulties Be Damned' as they gear up to release their self-titled debut album in the UK on November 20th 2015 through The Deep Floor Inc..
The video is an animated short film set in space, and opens with a monstrous figure flying a spaceship towards some sort of planetary body. Meanwhile, a robot finds itself with the ability to bring animals back from the dead - as well as seeing how they died, which every time is at the hand (or foot) of a human. It becomes a nomadic warrior of sorts following blood trails to save the victims. When it comes across a deceased humanoid figure, it comes to life and rips apart its robot saviour, offering its head to the colossal beast whom he serves on its return from space. It's a trippy visual without the music, but the sonic addition definitely intensifies the experience with the tribal drums, analog synth sounds and dreamy, harmonised vocals.
The duo; who are Jeff Musgrave and Graham Fish; met one another at University in 2005 and hit it off musically almost immediately. They previously formed the outfit Audiograft, under which they released the instrumental album 'Melody In The Half-Light' in 2012.
