Ides Of Gemini are one of the more meaningful acts operating on this barren Earth today, a synergy of ritual and romantic hymns to nature and the forces of spirit and self amidst the cosmos and this dark modern world. I recently was pleased to interview J. Bennett for this site and now the acclaimed dreamers have a new video out for you moody types. Ides sort of fill the same place in my hard heart as the much missed Ludicra or the active (last I checked) Amber Asylum, different in tone and sound but so compelling they cradle your heart in burnt hands. The buzzng guitar and bewitching vocal melody will sneak into your bone marrow.
In celebration of its release, today Noisey, reveals the vibey video vibes s of their erotic Daciana Birladeanu-directed “Seer Of Circassia” video. Elaborates singer/bassist Sera Timms, “The concept of the album traces the symbolic-psychological breakdown of a character over ten days [‘Seer Of Circassia’ takes place on day four]. We’re working within the structures of psycho-spiritual alchemical transformation, utilizing Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology. Essentially we have a story of the psychological conflict of opposing forces — yin-yang, male/female/dark light, etc. — each driven by desire. The masculine archetype in this story desires control and structure, while the feminine archetype desires recognition and equality as it has been repressed in the ‘Old World.’ Our protagonist is the Emperor, based creatively on the last Emperor of Constantinople, who represents the ego, masculine, solar consciousness along with control, structure, domination, force and power.”
