Nostalgia rings heavy in 23:23‘s video for Memories.
When Rami Vierula, frontman of Delay Trees decided to work on some new music under the moniker 23:23, it was because it “was born out of necessity. Suddenly I realized that all of my emotional and rational world started to take its form in music.”. Over the course of the next two years 23:23 self released three albums, The Softest Wave etc, Torero & Drifter. We were so impressed with the beauty, sadness and laid back lo-fi charms of these albums, we wanted to open them up to a wider audience. On May the 8th, all three albums got a worldwide digital release via Soliti.
The video for Torero cut Memories incorporates much of what’s great about 23:23’s outlook. There’s a sense of nostalgia in both the music (like Roy Orbison on mogadon) and in the visual, a photographic slideshow of someone’s past life and experiences. Slides rhythmically echo the snare hits as Memories explodes into life with beautifully languid
The video for Memories was filmed & directed by Black Lizard‘s Onni Nieminen and Rami Vierula. Editing duties were handled by Ghost Of Jack Nance‘s Eetu Maaranen.
