Ides Of Gemini Unveil “Strange Fruit” [VIDEO]

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 video 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.
