Impassioned, epic, slow, and heavy; it’s all here.

After countless setbacks due to lockdowns and scheduling issues, South African’s Acid Magus finally got around to shooting a music video for the second single off their debut album, »Wyrd Syster«.

»Red Dawn« closes out the Pretoria foursome’s debut effort and as with the rest of the album, is a metaphorical study of feminism. The band therefore opted to wear “dresses” for the video, tailored for the video by Nina Badenhorst.

The shoot took place over a weekend in October in an abandoned shooting range underneath guitarist Keenan’s in-laws’ house in Waterkloof Ridge, Pretoria. Heleen and Susan at Tiger & Lilly Productions conceptualized a red-lit live performance vibe and the rest, as they say, is history…

Crank this one up loud and all hail the »Red Dawn«!!

“packs a heavy, unavoidable punch, both lyrically and musically” – Texx And The City
