Quiz time. What connects Norwich based synthy post-punk combo, Invisible Cities and the forthcoming Marvel Studios uber-blockbuster superhero filled geek out extravaganza, Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Easy, both have recently filmed on location at Norwich’s UEA campus.
Granted, Age of Ultron had a slightly bigger budget and one or two more A-List stars than Invisible Cities video for their latest single, “More Haste”, but as tenuous links go, it’s not bad.
Given the dark, almost doom laden and dystopian tone of “More Haste” (think White Lies and Interpol), the video has a suitably bleak and Kafka-esque quality to it. There are no explosions, no superheros or supervillains, no quest for an infinity stone, just two guys on a seemingly never-ending search for one another through the warren-like pathways and alleys of life.
“More Haste” is out now and available to buy here.
