A few weeks ago Junip announced that their second self-titled album will be released on April 22 through City Slang. Since then, new track Line of Fire has notched up over 200,000 plays and their London show at Village Underground has completely sold out.
Now the trio, Jose Gonzalez , Elias Araya and Tobias Winterkorn, have announced the release of the official video to accompany Line of Fire. This video is the first instalment of a two part series of videos directed by Swedish film-maker and former Jose Gonzalez documentary-maker, Mikel Cee Karlsson.
He explains: “The video(s) tell the story of a tormented old man, stuck in a relationship that perhaps was not his choice or preference to begin with. We see fragments from childhood, the first awkward kiss, the father watching over him making sure he follows the right path. The old man, like all of us, a person programmed by the convictions and beliefs of others. In the case of the old man, the unconscious suddenly manifests itself when a young, jeans wearing character appears in their home, forcing him to question who he really is.”
The video for Line of Fire is stunning as is the song itself. The video portrays the emotion behind the song perfectly; reflecting on the life you have led and what you might have done differently. The images shown compliment Gonzalez’s lyrics to make sure the track gets you thinking. Line of Fire tells its audience a story and asks them to question their own choices in life.
