The unstoppable Macedonian dance-punk powerhouse Bernays Propaganda, a long-time underground favourite, presents its new video for the single ‘Retki bilki’, taken from their upcoming 5th studio album “Vtora mladost, treta svetska vojna” (2nd Youth, 3rd World War) out as collaboration of Moonlee Records, Geenger Records, Pop Depresija, Ill in the Head Records and Balkan Veliki on September 4th 2019.
The translucent multi-layered shots of ‘Retki bilki’, a video built around the concept of sign language, are characterized by neon light ambience and playful childlike animations blended with amorphous body shapes. They say that when a rare flower is born it comes out with music, making everyone happy. This is a video about the birth of such rare flowers.
The music video, starring Macedonian actress Kamka Tocinovski, was directed, filmed and edited by Milan Blaževski, filmed and color graded by Boris Takovski, and filmed and animated by Josip Zdravkovski.
New video comes as a teaser for the upcoming album, a collection of nine songs defined by catchy pop songwriting and stripped-down production that inventively blends influences of late 70s and early 80s post-punk, new wave, alternative rock, Detroit electro, Balkan and African folk music.
