PREMIERE: Lyndon Blue conjures a medieval dream world in his new clip Page of Wands

Lyndon Blue has a fresh new video clip for his song Page of Wands, drawing upon the scenes and characters from a deck of tarot cards with a medieval aura.

The experimental film clip, filmed in various locations around Victoria, was directed by Melbourne-based director Julia Suddenly. Shot entirely on Super 8 filmstock and influenced by Kenneth Anger, Vera Chytilova and James Bidgood, it bears an old-world charm you’ll fall head over heels for.

Methyl Ethel’s Lyndon Blue has unveiled a music video for Page of Wands, exploring tantalising tarot readings with an outsider pop twist.

Hailing from WA, Lyndon Blue is a current member of the psych-pop band Methyl Ethel, and has played live for many other projects such as Darren Hanlon and Peter Bibby.

His self-titled solo project marks the first time he has released music under his own name, after milling about the underground music scene in WA for about a decade. The project explores “subtly jazz-tinged electronica”, lo-fi rock and weird pop.

The video for Page of Wands certainly doesn’t lack in wackiness, straddling a vibe somewhere between Monty Python and the Holy Grail and a VHS-era Game of Thrones.

Capes, swords, candles and castles make way for an evident medieval theme, tying in effortlessly with the synthesiser keyboard motif that holds the song through its entirety. Things escalate even further when a sun-like figure on a cliff begins to play the violin – but you’ll just have to watch to find out how.

Page of Wands is out now.

 

Lyndon Blue will be playing live at The Bird in Perth on Friday April 12th, supporting Web Rumors’ Sinner (For Your Love) single launch. Grab all the details here.
