Belgrade, Serbia-based metal four-piece Atomic Shadows has recently launched a video for the new single “Hiraeth,” taken from their upcoming full-length release. The animated video for the song can be seen below, and was signed by Bosko Davidovic (BossCo Production).
The band commented: “The story of ‘Hiraeth’ is primarily an expression of nostalgic feelings, the times you lived through, the desire for what has been and longing for what could have been. Sense of fulfilment for overcoming bad things but also scars and painful moments in the past and the struggle with them on the present journey in life. The song is concepted so the listeners can find they’re own stories and meaning behind metaphorical lyrics.”
The visual side of the song is based on a concept reflecting the Samurai story and journey.
“To complement the song, scenes with different seasons represent time and graveyard reminds you of how fragile life is. Story begins with a Samurai practice, leaving home, fighting, climbing the hill to look at his home from distance and burning, in the last scene. The video was made with silhouettes with the simple background drawings so it gives you a dreamy feel,” the band continues.
It is expected that Atomic Shadows enters enter the studio in a few weeks and finish the recording of the album, which is expected to be launched before Summer 2018. A few more singles and videos will be released in the meantime.
They say, “the main focus after that are the gigs and expanding our audience in Europe. We are in contact with some gig organisers and we’re preparing and working hard in rehearsal studios to give the audiences something different and exciting.”
