„Great modern psychedelic rock is alive and well and living its best life in Poland. And leading the present charge of innovative talent from Eastern Europe is Trupa Trupa, who will be releasing their excellent, excellent new album, Of The Sun, on September 13th via Lovitt Records – a taste of which you can check out on their BandCamp page.

„Trupa Trupa’s music mixes elements of so many things I love – bits of psychedelia, krautrock, repetition, noise, melody, and beauty. It can be haunting, harsh, disturbing, meditative – sometimes all in the same track. This year they have made their best album yet, and have started releasing songs from it. Here’s a new video they posted last week for the song Longing – and the video has me beguiled, wondering about it long after I’ve watched it – who are these kids, why are the doing what they are doing, where was this filmed, when was it filmed? Beguiled enough to share it below.”
Reżyser Marcel Hones o video: „The lyrics of Longing led me to think about the way that existence does not always possess obvious meaning. I view the lyrics as a commentary on the way humans often live in extreme and destructive ways to compensate for the futility of their actions. This perspective of existence is bleak, but only part of the picture. In the words of John Caputo, “The fact that things have come about by the most extraordinary strings of cosmic luck and singular sequences of cosmic cycling and are vulnerable to the slightest shift in cosmic circumstance does not lessen but only magnifies their preciousness.” This quote suggests that life, amidst the chaos and randomness of the universe is the greatest example of meaning. In other words all aspects of existence, the seemingly good and bad, are necessary and possess their own value in the universe. In my video I aim to explore the complexities of finding meaning in futility and monotony. These aspects of existence can result in destruction or shed light on the beauty and poetic nature of existence. The characters in the video move and search constantly but attain nothing. The brutality of their actions is juxtaposed with the poetic nature of the song and 8mm film style. I hope to nauseate the viewer with the intensity of the characters yet provide moments to take a breath amidst the never ending lack of accomplishment.”
