VIDEO: “Scienceless”

Buffalo, New York’s Lemuria celebrate the release of their new album The Distance Is So Big with an End of the World party, in the new video for album highlight ‘Scienceless’. In the clip, the band host a raucous house party, seemingly to greet an incoming extra terrestrial invasion.

The video’s director, Sara Crow at No Future Films says: “I wanted to make something for Lemuria using the idea of eeriness in the suburbs; like there’s this super normal, all-American, wholesome life that has something kind of sinister lying underneath. Also, I think it’s hilarious that every six months there’s a new prediction for the end of the world and everyone just uses it as an excuse to get totally plastered. So we went to the suburbs and threw a rager for an imagined alien invasion!”

Lemuria’s Max Gregor says: “This is definitely the most fun we’ve ever had making a music video. Sara is a wonderful director, and we are very grateful to everyone who gave us their time, house and snacks for this project. Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to ‘act’ like we were partying for a film. To be honest, it’s a lot more exhausting than actually partying, but far more rewarding.”

Lemuria have seen an incredible reaction to their most recent album The Distance Is So Big, available now through Bridge9 Records. Critics on both sides of the pond have hailed this to be their finest album to date, with plaudits from the likes of NPR, SPIN, Alternative Press, and Kerrang!, Rock Sound, This is Fake DIY in the UK. Recorded with J Robbins (Against Me!, Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring), The Distance Is So Big is arguably their most intelligent and forward thinking release, whilst retaining the sweet melodies, introspective lyrics and off-kilter time signatures for which the band are known.
