Last week the great pipol @ Upsettherythm gave us a wonderful Easter present, not a chocolate egg (we already had one of those) but “Believer” an amazing single from John Maus’ third album ‘We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves’ released next June.
Jennifer Juniper Stratford’s directs this rather flipping video for ‘Believer’, which features John Maus for the first time alongside his hero “Jack Chan”. John is seen in profile singing about “people fighting all across the world” whilst some serious rare, analog video effects transport us through the waves of an alien landscape. The scenes of Jackie are taken from his wonderful film ‘Shaolin Wooden Men’ and it’s also worthy to note that JJ Stratford (Telefantasy Studios) is also the mastermind behind the impressive Multinauts sci-fi saga too.
The mp3 is free to donwload from Soundcloud, and if you’re lucky enough to live in the U.S, then you should know that John’s is preparing an upcoming tour.
