Planet Love Sound are an indie experimental band from Melbourne who spent artistically challenging time living in Berlin between 2009 and 2011. Their time in Berlin saw them perform in several support slots that played a vital role in establishing a fan base in Berlin, these were for Canadian band Holy F#@k, alt-country singer-songwriter Karen Elson and LA-based Warpaint.
Since returning to Australia in 2011 Planet Love Sound have released 2 EPs, titled ‘Part One’ and ‘Part Two’. The debut single Middle of Nowhere is taken from ‘Part Two’ and the artistic video has just been released.
Planet Love Sound joined forces with Sydney Director Maia Horniak to collaborate on the video for Middle of Nowhere and its extended version/short film ‘3 Seas’. I have just watched the video on Vimeo and adequate words elude me so I defer to the media release for description.
The result is a transformative, hallucinatory, dream-like and mystical piece. The film is a poetic, shamanic exploration into unity and destruction, but nonetheless open to interpretation. The starting point was to integrate 3 iconic shapes that represented each character, a triangle, a circle and a square.
Horniak and Planet Love Sound decided to transcend the usual process of just ‘directing’ a music video, the result ‘3 Seas’. A universe within the ‘universe’ using only in-camera effects into black holes, with black oil and salt, and created stunning surreal imagery.
Middle of Nowhere is featured on Part Two which is available now via www.planetlovesound.com & iTunes.
