Finnish rock idols The Rasmus are singling out new songs from their latest album, Dark Matters, released last October: over the weekend the group launched a music video for the track ‘Nothing’. It was recorded by the band’s own member, bassist Eero Heinonen (and it’s not his first clip for The Rasmus).
The video was shot in Berlin, Cologne, Vienna, London, Amsterdam, Tokio and Osaka in November 2017, as the band was presenting their new album in Europe and Asia.
The song chorus is quite dramatic, with singer Lauri Ylönen reaching emotional, high notes, while the music video is pretty static. It’s a series of interchanging parts with the frontman singing into the camera from train stations or on the roof of a skyscraper, on the one hand, and close-ups of five girls with painted faces in trible style.
What message did the band aim to deliver with the mysterious close-ups of women’s faces? Write your suggestions in the comments below!
The Rasmus have rounded off their European part of tour last fall and are now gearing up for their upcoming huge spring tour of Russia, all the way into Siberia and the Far East, kicking of March 3. See the full list of the band’s upcoming tour dates here.
From their recent European gigs the band could see the first reactions and say that while being to a large extent electronic, when played live, the songs from Dark Matters sound more rock and present a smooth mixture of the two. “The album is quite electronic, so when we play it live it’s a nice combination of electronic and rock,” Ylönen said in today’s live chat on Russian social network VK.
