FLOAT MOLLY have released a new music video!
The new music video, for the song A song of freedomis taken from the upcoming album by the iconic Celtic punk band Anthemslated for release this Friday via Climb records. The video shows the band joining forces with renowned Ukrainian animators/filmmakers, The crazy twinswho have created award-winning videos for SOCIAL DISTORTION, NOFX, JOSH FREESE and more.
Speaking of the video, The crazy twins Explain, “We worked on this video for three months under the constant air raids and bombings of our country. David and Brigitte reached out to us for this very special song, meant to tell the story of the Easter Rising and highlight the universal message of nations fighting for their independence and identity. They are idealists who will fight and die for their ideas. We connected the story to the reality we live in Ukraine. Generations that have gone through two world wars have paid for peace with their blood. Modern generations have grown up in a world where it is easy to take things for granted. We had calls with David talk about video development where David exclaimed indignantly ‘What?! Still?! People have to relive the war?!’ We have been going through this for more than six months now: life plans stopped, our friends have been fished out, some of them have already been killed, friends’ houses have been destroyed or looted, the lucky ones have been evacuated to a safer region or abroad. Generations of Ukrainians have been traumatized all their lives.
FLOAT MOLLY guitarist/singer David King adds, “It’s a song of freedom, which I wrote to tell of a dark period in Irish history. But suddenly injustice, and the fight against it, became topical. And so our Ukrainian friends, who had their freedom taken away, have created something with which seeks to inspire hope in everyone.
