Brisbane’s inovo are today releasing something that has been in production/the creation phase for over a year. A mammoth undertaking of indie film-making, not even to mention the carefully-crafted, brooding and atmospheric prog/rock music that accompanies it.
The three-piece progressive band based in Brisbane, Australia, who formed in 2015, are releasing their new single “The Day is Coming” alongside a filmclip that, on a shoestring budget, a desire to make something different and brilliant, and a vision that they did not compromise on, rivals that of small film companies. With the release of this music video, “The Day is Coming” uses otherworldly visuals coupled with an intense musical narrative to create a captivating audiovisual experience.
Rhys Tyack, guitarist for the band said that, “A year ago, when we recorded the song, we wanted to film something story driven because of Declan’s vivid lyrical concept. We reinterpreted the core themes of the lyrics with how we could make it come to life, in combination with the practicality of actually making the thing on a low budget. We wanted the central character (X) to have a sense of mystery like an old horror movie, while also confronting, so that initial impressions are aesthetically informed. In contrast to X, we created character Y to be more about being initially pleasing to the eye. As the music would tell the story through sound, we thought of using colour to be the way the characters communicate.”
