Wow, an actual music video! How often do we see this. I like the circle formation of the group and the central rotating camera. The drugged out and trapped character is also good. Very affective vocal work and soundscape from the guitars. The quartet is great, very well rehearsed. Check out the label Aesthis Records and the group Miscelanea Guitar Quartet. Don’t forget the composer: Marios Joannou Elia who has a sweet website (under construction) and awesome pictures (see below).
