On the heels of their April 18th release of two new tracks, ”Carthage” and “Strange Fruit,” atmospheric doom metal sorcerers, Ides of Gemini, have released a new for the latter. Check out “Strange Fruit” in the player above and let us know what you think in our comments section below.
The video was directed by singer/bassist Sera Timms, also of West Coast dark-psych unit Black Mare, who elaborates:
The first time I ever heard ‘Strange Fruit,’ I was immediately taken by the powerful imagery in the lyrics before I even knew the historical implications of them. Though this song was written as a protest against racism, it seems to me to conjure a deep mournfulness for the violent atrocities that all people continue to commit against one another, with racism being a very potent example…sadly more so today than ever.
