“Chariots On Fire”
August 22, 2017
This isn’t the sort of music that Byers has always made. Before forming Allelujah, he and multi-instrumentalist Lucas Oswald played in the Minus Story, a critically acclaimed psychedelic and experimental rock band that shared stages with, among others, Okkervil River and Deerhoof. Oswald has collaborated with Shearwater on Fellow Travelers, a bold set of alt-pop reimaginings released in 2013. Back together, Byers and Oswald have taken their music in challenging new directions, and incorporated ideas from the many projects they’ve worked on over the past decade.
In addition to his experience in music, Byers has also worked in the filmed entertainment industry – he’s collaborated with Isabella Rossellini on her thrillingly bizarre educational Green Porno series about the mating rituals of insects. Some of the weird, otherworldly props he designed with Rossellini for the show make an appearance in the clip for “Chariots On Fire”. Much like Allelujah’s music, the video feels like a peek into an altered consciousness. We don’t want to give too much away, so we’ll just tell you that you’ll encounter (among other things) some startling paper art, a series of creepy-sexy cross-legged mannequins, a stack of gold bars, a mysterious altar, and an extreme close encounter with a bowl of poured syrup.
We are elated to have the opportunity to work closely with the crew at Cosmic Dreamer to bring you this exceptional new video. Their roster is second to none and we can’t wait to introduce them to viewers across the spectrum.
