La doar doi ani de la aparitia albumului “Vector” (2018), formatia britanica Haken (progressive metal, progressive rock) revine cu cel 6-lea material discografic, intitulat “Virus“.
Discul va fi lansat pe 5 iunie 2020, sub egida InsideOut Music iar videoclipul celui de-al doilea single de promovare, primul a fost “Prosthetic“, este pentru piesa “Canary Yellow” si poate fi urmarit mai jos.
Trupa a declarat: “For Canary Yellow, we went in a more alternative direction, since we’re all big fans of bands like Radiohead, Elbow and Peter Gabriel. Those are artists who can portray quite dark subject matter through really beautiful music. Since the Virus album is intended to be a metaphor for various negative tropes of society, we wanted to explore this idea in a variety of ways. Canary Yellow deals with the suppression of physical and mentally abusive relationships; something that can often remain hidden behind a seemingly happy facade.
“We once again returned to longtime visual collaborators Crystal Spotlight for this ambitious animation and we’re absolutely thrilled with how well the visuals complement and enhance the atmosphere of the song. The video shows a seemingly idyllic family environment, but with a sense of sadness beneath the surface and absolute devastation looming on the horizon. They go about their day oblivious to the fact that they are mannequins living in a 1950s-style Doom Town experiment.”
