For too many bands the idea of a lyric video means a compromise; a low cost solution to provide a visual backdrop for a song. However, Leicester’s grunge rock titans Final Coil have bucked the trend with this visually compelling collaboration with Very Metal Art founder Andy Pilkington. Andy, who has already produced ground-breaking videos with the likes of Resin (whose EP we reviewed here) has redefined what a lyric video should be, adding complex and thought-provoking animation to every project that he undertakes, and the band are proud to present ‘daylight fades’, the lead single form their acclaimed EP ‘closed to the light’ (reviewed by our very own Jamie Rowell here).
Phil Stiles, Lead singer and guitarist for Final Coil comments: “Working with Andy has been an absolute blast. He got in touch to ask about the concept of the song, the lyrics and the overall meaning of the EP and then made suggestions from there. The results are amazing and we’re very proud to be sharing this, our first official video, with you.”
‘Daylight fades’ is the explosive opening track to the band’s latest EP, ‘closed to the light’, which can be downloaded for free from the band’s BandCamp page. A limited edition CD, featuring the amazing artwork of bassist Jola Stiles, is also available.
