Berlin, Germany based primitive rock solo project Moonstone premiere a music video for the track »We Are Flames« taken from the self-titled debut album.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by V. Santura (Dark Fortress, Triptykon).
Video created and edited by Eraser Pictures.
Moonstone comments: “I wanted to share this new video I just finished for »We Are Flames«, and also with it, the release of my little album »Moonstone«. It’s the most personal thing I’ve ever done, I was way too lucky to have had V. Santura capture it, it was recorded, mixed and mastered at Woodshed Studio, Germany.
I borrowed and adapted a page from Edvard Munch’s diary for the lyrics of this song. His words spoke to me deeply, as his paintings do too.
I don’t have much more to say, I rather leave the lyrics here:
WE ARE FLAMES
Far better go to ruination in the dregs of the great world
than to be a link in the upright nullity
rather like a bloody spark no hand will shield
which flares fiercely then is snuffed, deleted without a spot
Than to glow like a lamp with a placid measured flame
evening after evening in forever the same place
where the bird slumbers in its shrouded cage
and time is slowly measured by the same old parlor clock
We are flames which pour out of the earth!
Even the spark has the power to light the bonfire
know that was what set the fire-drum beating
know that was what lit the ocean of fire
and burst beliefs and turned the hourglass over!
We are flames which pour out of the earth!”
»Moonstone« is available now on all streaming platforms.
