(Band photo by Tomas Terekas) Out now is the official music video for Solo Ansamblis’ track, “Fosforinis Baseinas”. The song appears on the Lithuanian band’s new, sophomore album, Olos, out now on Artoffact Records.

Here’s what the band says about the video: “The atmospheric, improvisational video for ‘Fosforinis Baseinas’ was created by Šarūnas Akelaitis, mixing performance and documentary film styles. The video experience ties in to the lyrics, questioning surrealistic apocalypse and lost desires. What’s important today? How important are human relationships after all? The video looks best in the dark.”

You can view the track below.

Emerging from the Baltic scene, Solo Ansamblis mixes moody post-punk and robotic techno, with lyrics sung entirely in the band’s native language. “Fosforinis Baseinas” translates to “Phosphorous Pool” in English.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
