Watch Gim Kordon’s Vladimir video

To celebrate Helsinki Gay Pride Week, Gim Kordon release their new video for the single Vladimir.

An open letter to Vladimir Putin 

Take it easy Vladimir and let all the flowers bloom. We wonder how our neighbours treat their gay public? With terror? It’s likely our video would never be published in Russia, as you put the fear of god into any dissenting voices. To Quote Pussy Riot “What are you afraid of Vladimir?” Why not take it easy and join us in this dance. Gim Kordon, June 2014

Personally, we here at Soliti have never seen Mr. Putin looking so good.

Watch Prince Of Assyria’s new video for Bring Along Joy

Prince Of Assyria‘s Changing Places album was released in Finland in April, here’s the first video from the album, directed by Timo Wright, a media artist and documentary film director. The video get’s a Finnish premiere via music magazine Rumba.

Ninos Dankha, the driving force behind Prince Of Assyria gives his thoughts on Bring Along JoyThis song is about the feeling of not being  in control. Losing your self to the unknown feeling of new emotions. It can be something that your body is yearning for, or even trying to get rid off. The confusing part in this state of mind, is recognition of love or just a feeling total submission to something I can´t  understand…. it never stops growing, once you start thinking about it.”

Video director Timo Wright describes the concept behind the video for Bring Along Joy“The idea comes from love being a cloud; stormy weather, solid yet ethereal, rolling from the horizon, full on forms and interpretations.” 

You can listen to Bring Along Joy via our soundcloud page

Prince of Assyria’s Changing places is out now in Finland. European release later in 2014, with the promise of new Finnish shows this coming Autumn.
