New Noblesse Oblige video

A brand new Noblesse Oblige album will hit stores at the end of May. It is called Malady. Edwin has worked with Valerie and Sebastian on their Quel genre de garçon video and his film L’Amour Toujours. In the video for The Great Electrifier, the first single from Malady, Edwin created a devilish, visual playground. Inspired by Alfred Böcklin or even Aleister Crowley, the video flirts with occultism in an art-aesthetic way that resembles the works of Maya Deren or Kenneth Anger, mixed with a touch of Dark Shadows kitsch. Camera work is by Matthias Tschiedel, and filming was in the Berlin Spreepark and the Old Mausoleum House in Potsdam.
