David Horsburgh has created a brilliant collage-style video for Maribou State's Kingdom, with classic stock footage merged to create a fantasy retro-land, adorned everywhere with colour-bursts of giant blooms.

The effect is to create a sort of rioutously unhinged mid-century picture postcard, a delightful accompaniment to the sun-kissed and deeply mellow Kingdom, and inspired by themes from the electronic duo's recent album Kingdoms In Colour.

DAVID HORSBURGH:

The flower motif from the band’s album artwork was the inspiration for the flowers that grow throughout the video

“We wanted to create a video that echoed the track’s themes of travel and exploration, playing with the ways in which people travelling can change and transform landscapes as well as themselves. So a mixed media collage approach really spoke to us; sourcing vintage footage from creative commons sources and then subverting it with VFX to turn it into something new.

"The flower motif from the band’s album artwork was the inspiration for the flowers that grow throughout the video; out of canyons, eyes and even on the moon!”
