Here is the world premiere of the new Tyto Alba video for "The Hunger". The band is also set to perform for their release party tomorrow night at Syntax (flyer below). Easily one of our favorite bands here at Ultra5280 the video is a haunting thrill ride that takes us to a real dark place.
The music video for “The Hunger”, off of Tyto Alba’s sophomore EP, In Our Own Time, utilizes the talent of LA-based cinematographer Colin Anders (Slice Cinematics) and was filmed primarily at local Denver art bar/music venue Syntax Physic Opera. The video explores the darkness and inner turmoil of a dysfunctional romantic relationship. Primal tendencies that rarely surface but are hard to ignore come to life in the form of eerily masked figures and voodoo rituals. The dual characters played by singer/songwriter Melanie Steinway represent the conflict of repressed desires with outward restraint, reinforced by the chorus, “overflow - don’t you let it show”. Colin Anders’ cinematic vision melds with the moody ambiance of Syntax to produce a stunning music video that is at once alluring and unsettling.
