Son Lux 'Yesterday's Wake' by Marek Partyš
With a fierce sense of symbolism and visual poetry, Czech director Marek Partyš has made a memorable critique on the vacuousness of luxury for the American experimental band Son Lux.
The central figure - a young woman who exudes fierce seriousness, but is also under psychological pressure - expressed through dance, and oily blood that seeps from everything coated in gold...
"The mood of Yesterday's Wake evokes in me the picture of a poetic apocalypse. It sounds like the voices of both singers contemplate about it and ask themselves, where the failure came from. And that’s what the music video is about. It’s about the personal traits that led to it – greed, callousness and possessiveness.
"The luxurious and pompous chateau and its surroundings are filled with poison which’s been accumulating there for years. And with every next violent and unscrupulous act, this liquid is forcing up to the surface to spurt out and become the common blood of things, people and nature. The question is whether this liquid is purifying and if the stream will ever stop."
