IDES OF GEMINI Debut “Seer Of Circassia” Video

Ides of Gemini have premiered the new haunting, ritualistic video for their track “Seer of Circassia”, over at Noisey. Bassist/vocalist Sera Timms issued the following comments regarding the conceptual nature of the video:

“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.”

Watch the video after the break and pick up a copy of Ides of Gemini’s new record, Old World New Wave, here.
