Experimental drone metal troupe Sun O))) and septuagenarian crooner Scott Walker released their collaborative LP Soused this week, and now they've unveiled some visuals for album track "Brando."
According to Walker, the song was inspired by Marlon Brando's body of work and the actor's unflinching willingness to be beaten up on film. "It's a song of unfulfilled longing," he said, in a press release. "A song of masochistic longing."
French-Austrian artist, choreographer and director Gisèle Vienne stepped in to create an accompanying short film for the song, which takes place in 1968 in the French Alps. A dancer, a teenager and "France's Most Famous Dominatrix" serve as the main characters in the ten-minute clip.
Soused is out now on 4AD and you can see Vienne's visual interpretation of "Brando" in the player above.
