Once again pushing the boundaries of the album/EP format, we collaborated with photographer David Payne and music/arts website IDIOTEQ.com to create the silent film тараканы (Tarakani) - the Cockroach, in which our music drives the narrative. The film tells the story of an unnamed pilot, trapped in a cycle of war flashbacks and waking nightmares. As he battles his hallucinations and alcohol dependency, he readies himself to fly out of trouble one last time.
As a stage show, we intend to screen the film and perform the soundtrack live. We have full backline including projector and PA, allowing us to perform in a wide variety of spaces.
Through this project, our intention is to provoke a conversation around the effects of isolation, addiction and past trauma on mental health, and ask the question: "What happens when we try to outrun our demons?"
