Progressive rock outfit Balloons Kill Babies have peeled back the illusion of reality today with their new song, “Illuzia”. The instrumental post-rock three-piece outfit now features recent addition on drums and percussion, Scott Davey (formerly of Dead Letter Circus and also the mastermind behind Three Tonne Deep).
“Illuzia” (Hungarian for illusion) is the second single from Balloons Kill Babies in the lead
up to their sophomore EP Prodromal – produced by ARIA award winner Govinda Doyle. A
three and a half minute cathartic dreamscape, the song journeys through moments of
ambient calm, euphoria and disorienting chaos.
A collective visual interpretation of the sound by the band in collaboration with Luke
McClean (Shots for Bands) and Beau Sharpe , the video takes place in an almost dream
like space, with dancer (Debbie Olcorn) acting as the personification of the song’s emotion
and emergence of an idea in the mind’s eye. With the band obscured throughout the clip
BKB drive home their philosophy of the music being the most important aspect of the band,
removing ego and message from the work.
