The Ocean has once again worked with director Craig Murray on a music video. The first time was the song "Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence", and now they've tackled "Permian: The Great Dying" in a much more natural light. According to guitarist Robin Staps, the video was shot in India and Indonesia, and is meant to look pretty stripped down.
“While the first clip was very artsy, based on strong visual effects, intense colors and lots of post-production, (‘Permian‘) was meant to have a desaturated, natural look and get by almost entirely without effects. We wanted it to have a dry, suffocating grade, with nice grain and a very authentic, stripped-to-the-core feel.”
The Ocean is expected to release Phanerozoic II: Whatever Phanerozoic II Is Going To Be Called sometime this year.
