Local Saskatoon dark-dance-pop sibling duo Violent Kin have just released a video for track called "Keep Your Balance" from their forthcoming Velvet Hideout EP, which should be available "soon."
"Keep Your Balance" is a guitar-y number with the band's signature moody style and vocal harmonies. The video has a similarly moody look, and was made using the stop-motion technique, showing the band members in equal parts bloody and beautiful... and sometimes silhouetted.
"We basically spent a week laying in the dirt to make this video," stated guitar-/bass-/vocal-/brother-ist SJ Kardash, who made the video with his sister and bandmate, Maygen.
"The story kind of wrote itself. We'd start editing and realize we had to shoot a few more scenes to make something work, so we'd go back into the woods, lay down and start taking more photos. You should've seen Maygen's mosquito bites."
Check out the results:
