In the music video for Austin heavy synth band Troller's "Storm Maker" from their new album Graphic, director Sean Miller utilizes vibrant color, texture, and abstraction to depict "lyrical beauty with slight unease," he told The FADER. The result looks like an experiment gone beautifully wrong, and accurately brings to life the environment the song was meant to exist in.
"Lyrically, this song is about the cycle of chaos and order in life," explained Troller via email to The FADER. "When circumstances force you to re-evaluate and humble yourself, there is a somber process of accepting your own limitations. These self-reflective moments usually teach valuable lessons to better manage the moments when you actually are in control. It's the duality of being a Storm Watcher and a Storm Maker. Musically, we wanted to have at least one song on the record that was pretty and catchy, so we sampled the drum machine from an old organ and switched off the fuzz pedals and turned on the chorus."
Troller's new album Graphic is out now via Texas label Holodeck Records.
