The Grates new video

the new video for Australian band The Grates’ “Turn Me On” taken from the new album “Secret Rituals”.
“The main concept was to make a video reminiscent of Goddard’s Alpha Ville. After meeting the band and brainstorming ideas, the concept transformed into this dark and playful video of elusive imagery that hints towards the album’s name “Secret Rituals”. I thought that putting all these absurd metaphysical elements and esoteric rituals ending with a vortex will give some sort of conclusion to the series of bizarre spells John and Patience summon on the clip, but then again it could all simply be healthy randomness.”
The Grates will be hitting the road in Australia this June, as well as supporting The Hives. We hope they’ll get to tour in the UK later this year.
