With the new album from White Moth Black Butterfly, Atone, due on 1st September, through Kscope the band have premiered their first video, for the song “Tempest”. The clip was filmed against the rugged & stunning backdrop of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park in Scotland, with “Tempest” being the concluding episode in a two-part story.
Both parts of the story were scripted and storyboarded by White Moth Black Butterfly’s Daniel Tompkins and directed by Richard Oakes of Dark Fable Media. Adding an unusual charm to the video is the contemporary ‘ritual’ performance choreographed by co-vocalist Jordan Turner.
Vocalist Dan Tompkins explains further the concept in more depth “Rather than present them in order we believed it would add to the magic of the story by allowing Tempest to surface first, which is actually the concluding part to the plot. The story behind “Tempest” has a medieval and fantasy based theme and we couldn’t have achieved this without the assistance of Duncarron Medieval Village and the Clanranald Trust, who styled our costumes and perfromed in the prequel that we are yet to announce”
