FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 17, 2020: New York-based electronic act VEXILLARY has unleashed an innovative new video for their track, “Annihilation.” The song appears on VEXILLARY‘s new EP, SurViolence. Visuals and editing were done by Svitlana Zhytnia and production was done by Reza Seirafi.
About the SurViolence EP:
SurViolence adopts the theme of unease in an overly politicized society; using surveillance culture as a metaphor on how technology that was created to serve and protect can serve to exploit. Hence the title, SurViolence. The sub-plot of tension and lack of trust in the decisions that are being made for us fueled the eerie sounds and direction of the record.
Voyeurism has been weaponized to give rise to surveillance. Violence has been digitized to replace intelligence. This is where evolution has led us. It’s time to take back control. If only we could have our eyes back to see.
Welcome to the surrealist horror of SurViolence.
