New Wave legends The Psychedelic Furs have aired the video for their latest single “Wrong Train".
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their album 'Made of Rain', which came out in July 2020 via Cooking Vinyl. Grab your copy here.
Richard Butler: “‘Wrong Train’ continues the black and white textured, mysterious feel of the previous videos from ‘Made Of Rain’. It was a pleasure working along with Hans Neleman on this project. The creativity Hans, Peter Sebastian and their team brought shows in every frame. Much like in paintings, imagery in this video is altered to where it is seen in an entirely different way.”
For the video, director Hans Neleman drew inspiration from Furs’ frontman Richard Butler’s paintings. “Wrong Train" explores the theme of a disintegrating relationship and the idea was to deliver something rooted in a more abstract realm rather than illustrating the lyrics literally. I photographed and filmed Richard while painting his face as if he were delivering an art performance” Neleman says. Restricted by Covid-19 limitations, the video was shot in Neleman’s home-studio in Connecticut and at Michelson Studios in upstate New York. After the shoot, the photographic material was handed over and digitally manipulated by Peter Sebastian.
