New Video: “Cyborg’s Lament” by Saturnfly
Ottawa art-rock trio, Saturnfly, just released a gloomy video for their eerie song “Cyborg’s Lament.”
The band is comprised of a Marion Arthur Kiss on cello and vocals, Stephane Arthur Kiss on guitars and drum pads and Lou Leblanc on Moog. They draw on Massive Attack, Portishead and Bjork as influences, and do so quite well.
The dimly lit video, while simple, is quite powerful. It may just be three people in a room playing music, but it is this simplicity that had me mesmerized by singer Marion’s voice and lyrics.
The song is the title track off their upcoming album which is scheduled for release in October. I asked Marion to give me a little background on the song and this is what she had to say: “The song sets the stage for a full-fledged science fiction concept album which will tell the story of a Cyborg who leaves her home on Earth to search the universe for humans who have left the planet long before. Cyborg’s Lament is the song she sings as she is leaving Earth in her space pod, uncertain of her future, lonely and scared.”
My curiosity is peaked and I am quite excited by the sounds of this project. I am also very excited that they are playing this year’s Ottawa Folk Festival.
Check out the video below that was shot in the Courtroom of the Art’s Court in downtown Ottawa, by videographer, Kim Vincent of Ravenstone Productions shot the video.
