HAKEN Goes Back To The 1950s In New Song "Canary Yellow"

"They go about their day oblivious to the fact that they are mannequins living in a 1950s style 'Doom Town' experiment."

Haken will release Virus, the sequel to their 2018 album Vector, on June 5. The band is now streaming their new song "Canary Yellow" alongside a music video created by Crystal Spotlight.

“For 'Canary Yellow', we went in a more alternative direction, since we’re all big fans of bands like Radiohead, Elbow and Peter Gabriel. Those are artists who can portray quite dark subject matter through really beautiful music. Since the 'Virus' album is intended to be a metaphor for various negative tropes of society, we wanted to explore this idea in a variety of ways. 'Canary Yellow' deals with the suppression of physical and mentally abusive relationships; something that can often remain hidden behind a seemingly happy facade.

We once again returned to long time visual collaborators 'Crystal Spotlight' for this ambitious animation and we're absolutely thrilled with how well the visuals complement and enhance the atmosphere of the song. The video shows a seemingly idyllic family environment, but with a sense of sadness beneath the surface and absolute devastation looming on the horizon. They go about their day oblivious to the fact that they are mannequins living in a 1950s style ‘Doom Town‘ experiment.”
