Easter unveils the new video for Suicidal Kiss, the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album Meander Lines, released 30/03 on Super Smash Hit Records.
Directed by Sam Alder using his own feedback loop technique the film draws on old VHS footage from singer/guitarist Tom Long’s high school project. “We made this piece in school where I played a junkie, my pal Mat was an alcoholic psychiatrist who has an affair with one of his clients who is a prostitute, who also has an abusive partner.
These dark but kinda melodramatic themes are what I was teasing out in the song, the despair of life/love unravelling and colliding with a teenage fixation with suicide and dying young that I guess was still with me, so digging this old footage was real treasure as it has that all on display, and making this re-connection to who I was as a teenager is something I was doing throughout the writing of the album.”
