Directed by Kyle V. James and Michael Bourne, the “Stay Down” video is composed of beautiful, luscious excerpts from the award-winning short film The Death Drive. The Melbourne-based collection of Australians and ex-pat Swedes Fire to the Stars have delivered a true piece of art. Every element of the video was masterfully executed, from the lighting to the wardrobe, right down to the post-production. For “Stay Down,” the band has upped the ante even further by blurring the lines between music video and short film. The end result is a striking piece that stimulates not only the eyes and ears, but also the hearts and minds as well.
Their sound brilliantly celebrates their influences like Dead Can Dance, Grouper, and My Bloody Valentine.
