Knifeworld – Clairvoyant Fortnight
Knifeworld – Clairvoyant Fortnight on MUZU.TV.
Words From Knifeworld frontman Kavus Torabi:
The video for Clairvoyant Fortnight was initially inspired by the film Blithe Spirit with Margaret Rutherford. At least that was the starting point, I play a charlatan mystic that unwittingly contacts the undead through the usual means. Finally the true face of God is revealed. Watch the video to find out who the Hell that could be.
The whole feel of the video was, I suppose, a deliberate riposte to the dreary and increasingly corny slurry of ‘dark and moody’ videos that want desperately to prove the director/ band are familiar with Andrei Tarkovsky and David Lynch. While I love the films of both, the videos of third rate stock images of raindrop falling from leaf in slow motion, well lit, monochrome old person looking up pensively, brief shot of band in silhouette, wide angle shot of band’s singer in an empty all white room in a wooden chair, head in hands, catholic iconography peppered throughout, beautiful but ‘icy’ looking woman turning away from camera, some sort of children’s toy, band looking po-faced in large room etc, usually accompanied by similarly uninspired music leave me bored.

From guitarist / vocalist Sandro Schiena:
The video for the track was all shot in one day by rushing from one location to another. It features some light plays and some questionable dance moves. The lyrics were written after watching ‘Inside Job’ and contains ironic lyrics on off-shore banking and moral bankruptcy.

Explanation (from Nina Wagner, vocalist / frontwoman):
“Not too long ago I started having this vision of a woman caught in a web of inky black bondage tape. The style was to be sexual, alluring, empowering and maybe even dangerous. Later I came across Pam Hogg’s fetish fashion designs and I was instantly hooked. I related to Pam Hogg’s work and knew that her designs were to be the blue print for the next music video. ‘The Spaces in Between’ music video was born from red wine, uninhibited sexual desire and ruthless raw attitude. Just because a woman seems trapped in a web of black tape, doesn’t mean she’s harmless, she’s most likely seducing you for the kill. Being wrapped and strapped in bondage tape ironically made me feel very free.”
