Australians Ouroboric deliver again “terrifically playful and fun” alternative metal with their video Electric Pantomine. The song is taken from their recently released and long-awaited album DeAd-BoY: Zero.
Explaining the story behind Electric Pantomine, vocalist Phil aka Crowley says about the song: “Electric Pantomime is an abstract take on new age voyeurism with a 2020-21 theme. The ‘foreguy’ archetype watches on as he munches away on the caution popcorn seeing the band play in isolation, as well as their live performance. Meanwhile, the fans each have their Covid lockdown space and each have their own eccentric personality that depicts how the fourth wall into their private lives has been broken down before the pantomime watching on.”
Mitchell further says: “It’s all very abstract, much like a Rorschach test is measured in it’s interpretation. The tides turn when the mist appears before the pantomime and the TVs rise, bringing him out of the shadows and into the live performance. With no walls to hide behind and no longer anonymous, the pantomime flees, falling victim to the mist. The pantomime isn’t the only one revealed however, as in the final shot of the fans, they become aware of the viewer watching the music video, further breaking down the walls of voyeurism. Where do the wires go?”
