Following the recent release of ‘Brothers And Sisters Of The Black Lagoon’ on Fire Records. Orchestra Of Spheres reveal new video for ‘Trapdoors’.  Teaming up with local Wellington based artists Georgette Brown and Dan Harris, they have produced an entrancing and kaleidoscopic video that superbly captures the surreal and energetic nature of the band.

Premiere on It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine : here

“We had a cool time shooting this video. Wellington artist Georgette Brown wanted to do something out in the forest, so we found this site which is in Porirua, not far from Wellington city, and set up with a generator, rotating drum stage, smoke machine, lights, cameras and a dog called Skid. Skid never made the final cut because he was too interested in eating the scraps of ham we were throwing to him to get in shot, but he’s like our spirit guide and a very wise being, so it was important to have him around for the shoot anyway. Spirit Elder stars in the video, she’s 9 or 10 years old, also a very wise creature, and a natural in front of the camera. We just had a laugh that day and we didn’t have much of an idea about what Georgette was going to do with the footage. So it buzzed me to see the finished video. There’s a kind of logic of absurd imagery in the lyrics of Trapdoors, words that were written in a lucid dream state by our old drummer Tooth, and the song doesn’t really lend itself to a narrative music video. But Georgette has animated the images so they flow into some weird story. She’s am amazing artist, check out her stuff” Baba Rossa

“Futuristic and unsettlingly primal” Uncut

Amidst the noise, strangeness and free-form experimentation, an excellent band are emergingProg

“Part Sun Ra otherworldiness, part Sublime Frequencies and part ESG … Orchestra of Spheres blew us away. I’ve seen them several times since that first gig and the magic only intensifies each time.” Dan Snaith – Caribou

“Orchestra of Spheres must be the most out-of-this-world band in music today…sounds like they come from another planet, where nonstop dance and remarkable melodies are the norm.” Brian Shimkovitz – Awesome Tapes from Africa
