A storm is coming… The journey into instrumental progressive rockers SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI‘s new album « Continuum » progresses; as the video for « Solar Storm » lands today.
« Solar Storm is the cumulative blend of fast, slow, heavy, progressive styles of SOAC all encapsulated within a five minute adrenaline shot. Working with Simon Risbridger on this video was awesome as he completely understands our visual aesthetic and secluded introspective approach. We wanted the video to represent the different segments and styles within the track as part of the journey – it has been highly stylised with multiple references and subliminal messages. Embark the journey and embrace the storm!’ states SOAC bassist Nick Hannon
The video starts a black and white fine art epic shot in and around the spiritual home of SOAC, Swale and the Isle of Sheppey and the story progresses into a cinematic visual feast of intergalactic travel through space and time. The introspective journey of ‘Solar Storm’ has been directed by long term collaborator ‘Simon Risbridger’ who worked with Sons of Alpha Centauri on visuals including live performances with A Storm of Light.
« Solar Storm » is the second single taken from the second SONS Of ALPHA CENTAURI’s album « Continuum ». The album has been received to critical acclaim and is available from H42 Records in Europe and Cobraside Distribution in the United States and Canada.
