French heavy psych trio Mars Red Sky is now streaming their single "The Final Round" alongside a stop motion video directed by Carol Teillard d’Eyry. I'm really not sure which is trippier – the song or the video.
"'The Final Round' is one of our most progressive rock songs; it features several distinct parts that fit together and create a long, cinematic piece," said Mars Red Sky guitarist Julien Pras. "It also features Jimmy (bass) on lead vocals, which is quite unusual and makes a nice change of scenery when listening to the complete album.
"The video was shot near a very important place to us, the castle of Monteton – where we composed our last two albums. The video features some very nice stop-motion sequences reminiscent of the Brother Kay’s work or some of the earlier Tool videos. The whole video clip revolves around the lyrics' end-of-the-world topic. It’s the first time we work with the director Carol Teillard D’eyry and we’re very happy with his work."
