German trio Sizarr have posted the video for their forthcoming track 'Purple Fried'.

You may well have heard this already. Sizarr were picked to soundtrack the Red Bull Music Academy's latest campaign, with 'Purple Fried' taking pride of place in their launch advert.

Now the track is to gain a stand alone release. The German trio are to make 'Purple Fried' available, with fans across the globe already swooning at their ice cold electronics. ClashMusic have grabbed the clip as a Friday afternoon treat, along with some words from the band about the making of the video, and their intentions.































The song deals with a thought of Hermann Hesse in his book "Der Steppenwolf", in which he describes a certain category of people, he calls suicides. The important thing to know is, that for him a suicide isn't necessarily everyone who really commits it, or someone who thinks about doing it. It's someone who sees the suicidal act as his last and complete freedom, he has left with nothing else left. "Purple Fried" is a song that is rather easy musically but with a heavy thought behind it lyricalwise and I really liked that controversy, so the video follows that scheme. We also wanted a counterpart to our first video, which was pretty rough and hectic.

The basic idea was to create this image of a "pleasant death". Pretty much like when kids play in the streets and kill eachother with fictional guns. Innocent. So every scene is about death or loss but never in a cruel or harmful way. In every scene there are white hands.

Their function is the one of the executers or they just symbolise this thought of being a suicide because that's what they all have in common. In the end you see that we are the "missing bodys" to those hands, so we're pretty much death in this video. It all takes place in one room because we wanted it to look clean and only the backgrounds change to differ between scenes. The landscapes you see throught the window start of pale and switch to colors in every scene once the action happened. That should symbolise the peace and freedom part of the suicidal thought. We thought it would be interesting if all the effects were rather obvious, almost theatre-like. For example the red cloth that get's pulled out underneath that girl like blood in one of the scenes.
