By Divine Right – Past The Stars (Video)

BY DIVINE RIGHT release a brand new video for “Past The Stars” from “Organized Accidents” available now in blue translucent vinyl in our HDD STORE! “Past The Stars is about space aliens waiting for them to come and get me and my son. It’s also about how being in a touring band is like being space aliens visiting different world and then leaving back into the “black” between planets between cities. Its title was suggested to me years ago by a little boy i met in Ohio.” ~ Jose

 

By Divine Right ‘Zoomies’ Video

BY DIVINE RIGHT launch a new video for the sun drenched tune “Zoomies” from the critically acclaimed “Organized Accidents“.

The third video in a trilogy of work by Australian-born director Benjamin Portas, the visuals shimmer and flicker with vibrant washes of colour like summer sun bouncing off cottage windows reflecting the tune’s musical exploration of ambience and deconstruction. Portas used heavily treated pinhole footage collected in fields in Canada and Australia. Goerdie Dynes (drummer) also made a road video for Zoomies HERE.
