MUSIC VIDEO: ‘DER LETZTE TONE’

ADDED THE 11TH OF FEBrUARY 2024

We are proud to release the music video for the song "Der Letzte Ton" created by photographer David Foli.

Recordings where done in snowcovered greenhouses during the dead of winter. The temperature where well below zero and while heat was provided by a simple wood stove we recorded the video as darkness fell. The atmosphere was quite unique and matched the music perfectly.
