Ottawa’s The Peptides dropped a music video for Invaders which coincide for Earth Day.
About the song and music video.
Despite the vacuum left by the cancellation of live performances, The PepTides have been busy preparing to release some new content.
One of the projects that they are most proud of is the new music video for their track “Invaders” from the most recent album Galapagos Vol.1.
They had the great fortune of working with director Aaron DaSilva from British Columbia. T
he video features arresting visuals, both aerial and ground, captured at one of Ontario’s largest and oldest iron and steel recycling facilities.
The Peptides wrote the song Invaders as a commentary on the impact the human race is having on the earth…what will be left behind if the human race were to disappear? “We invade in car, fumes, vapour.”
The music and video have a post-apocalyptic feel, which, in these unprecedented times of abandoned urban centers, empty highways, feels very relevant.
They feel strongly that this video is a great way to address some of the greater issues we’re currently facing.
The human race, fragile as it is, has a heavy impact on the earth.
But just like in the music video, people are still finding away to party, celebrate, and dance in this new world we’re facing.
