The Ocelots – Colours in the Dark (Official Video)

Generally art, whether in the visual or sonic form, shouldn’t have to be over-explained. It so happens that we’ve been telling a detailed story of this song at every performance since I wrote it. Damn. The childhood memory of being made pray, and the innocent decision not to talk to the god that everyone else was talking to. Forcing your palms deep into your eyes and seeing the blood dance behind the screen of your eyelids. Every lyric in this song has its own meaning to me, I’ve sang it a thousand times, and I’ll sing it a thousand more. New memories are naturally refreshing the melody, new people’s responses are constantly bringing the simple story to light. We recorded the video for this song in a waste disposal site somewhere in the Australian desert. We went to every Salvos and Vinnies in Perth looking for the costume, table and chair. We filmed and edited it ourselves, and ran into all of the amateur problems along the way. It was so much fun. Tackling blistering heat, with flies everywhere, and only an admirable supply of Vegemite to defend us. It was just Brandon, Jackson and myself. We felt like Priscilla Queens of the desert. We hope you enjoy the song and the video. This will be the first of three singles before 2020. Here is the spotify link to the track, please save it in all your playlists!, Ashley & Brandon
