Soma World explore otherworldly ruins in the stunning video for ‘Strange Dreams’

Soma World
Margate-based three-piece Soma World have just unveiled the official music video for their dreamy debut single Strange Dreams. Loving the ambient textures of the song, a perfect marriage of hazy, post-rock influenced pop music with infectious atmospheres, offset by dual vocal harmonies that maintain the track’s melancholy while adding a yearning, human touch to the song’s sound.

Filmed in Lake Torrevieja, Spain, the visuals were captured on a Russian super8 camera from 1978, and processed by On8Mil in London. The group travelled to the Costa Blanca in its off-season to capture the eerie nature of the visuals, as the group drove around while writing, recording shots as they went. Comprised of soft-focused landscapes, Strange Dreams is a stunningly shot abstraction of surroundings, gradually obscuring forgotten ruins into an alluring collection of landscapes. Watch it below!




On the video, the group said:
The track was written around the loss of a friend, and the dreams and memories which recurred at that time. On arriving to the deserted town we sat next to an old statue of a lady looking out to sea. It was built in the early 1900s to pay homage to all the women of the town who lost men at sea. Tragically this lady's husband Antonio never returned, yet she still sat waiting day after day for him to come back. So this recurring sort of sadness felt like like a fitting subject for the film.
