watch Dalek’s new Samurai-themed, claymation video for “With These Mics”
Industrial rap group Dälek have made a new video for “With These Mics” off their recent Respect to the Authors EP. It’s a claymation video starring an old Samurai who “wanders in search of immortality” (says director Vincent Cretara). It gets a little trippy, and as Dälek explains, the storyline complements the story of the song:
We were introduced to Vincent Cretara’s work through a mutual friend. We are always interested in seeing how artists that we respect interpret our work. We were curious to see where Vincent would go visually with “With These Mics” and just knew we didn’t want a literal interpretation for the video. What he came back with was dope animation and storytelling that really complements the song.
Vincent adds, “The music video for ‘With These Mics’ is an ’80s style Ray Harryhausen / Akira Kurosawa inspired storyline visualizing the rising momentum of the song.” Watch below.
Dälek also have EU/UK tour dates coming up this month and next, and those are listed below.
