GAIKA has shared the brooding, startling video for his song 'Seven Churches For St Jude'.
The song originally appeared on his 2018 album 'BASIC VOLUME', a break out project for the multi-disciplinary artist.
'Seven Churches For St Jude' was a real standout, and it now features in a new video co-directed by Rob Hepp.
“The video for ‘Seven Churches for St Jude’ is a piece about mental survival in an age of disaster media inundation,” Heppell explains. “The last few years have seen the hydra heads of reactionary extremism bubble up through cracks that used to be called conspiracy theorists, lifting the tectonic plates of global politics and diluting reality with weaponised fantasy.”
“Gaika’s character The Black Prince of Moscow is a time-travelling being from the alien empire that we call Angels, who has been observing the earth for the last millennium from his lair. His job is to keep an eye on the the secret machines under the earth, which are enormous computers that have a symbiotic relationship with the manifestations of life on the surface of the earth.”
“He controls these machines by interfering with human politics and giving people gifts of money and technology to advance or hold back society. Through this video we are introducing the Black Prince of Moscow obliquely as a time travelling observer character who might be dreaming or might be releasing a warning statement about contemporary politics on a global television hack.”
But wait! That's not all. GAIKA has also shared brand new song '1800 FENDI' as part of the complete single package.
