Lingua Nada releases their new album, Snuff, on March 23. Today they premiere the weird and wonderful video for “Cyanide Soda,” a cut from the album via Ghettoblaster. This is what the band had to say about it:
“The song is an awkward mixture of math rock, electronic and straight ’90s Smashing Pumpkins fuzz stuff; all this with our usual playful/cartoony chromatic/dark chord progression. All the sounds were made with guitars and (many) pedals only; no real synthesizer.
[For the video] we took a bunch of strange characters and had them interact with each other. Obviously with a cute concept, its similar to a video game, such as Mortal Kombat. Each character has little individual story. It was the plan for [us] to experiment with HD cameras and stuff; we are used to doing no-budget lo-fi videos. And as expected, even with HD cameras, [we] found a way to integrate cheap visuals into the video in post-production. We had to learn how to swordfight and make choreography with YouTube tutorials, and came home with bruises after the shooting.”
