Hexvessel release new video and single ‘Phaedra’
Hexvessel release atmospheric third single and video, ‘Phaedra’ from their new album Kindred.
Directed by Canadian film-maker Justin Oakey, the video to Hexvessel’s ‘Phaedra’ is a dark and chilling, atmospheric movie in it’s own right:
Watch the video:
Central to the Roman epic tale of Phaedra, with it’s Greek tragedy, both song and video include themes on the law of nature that governs human behaviour, our animal spirit; the idea that through death and rebirth we restore the cosmic order. Singer/Songwriter Mat McNerney says “In this song, Phaedra is my totem heroine, icon of the human spirit. We are wild animals and our place within this universe is to live and die according to nature’s rules. It’s no mistake either that Phaedra is also mentioned in two of the greatest transcendent musical works of all time; Lee Hazlewood’s “Some Velvet Morning” and Tangerine Dream’s “Phaedra” album. Phaedra is at the deep heart of Kindred, and she is both divine and human decorated with blood. The only divine law that is not flawed is that we all must return to nature. We all must die!”
Kindred will be released on the 17th of April 2020 worldwide via Svart Records, digital, CD and LP.
