New video: Cull ‘Magi Fuel’

Words by Scenewave Australia - Published on October 7, 2014

Was YouTube screwing up again? I clicked on the HD button, only to find it was already enabled. It seemed as though I was back in primary school, watching an ancient nature documentary on one of the old TVs. This was my initial experience when I watched Cull’s new video for their latest release Magi Fuel. Yet once I sat back and watched what unfolded before me, it certainly didn’t matter.

Shot with (presumably) an extremely low budget green screen, Cull’s new single is set to a sweeping compilation of nature shots, with what looks like technology from the 1980s. Wonderfully ironic, it depicts the lead singer singing along to the track, with chunks taken out his head – almost identical to what many experience when navigating Apple’s PhotoBooth for the first time, and attempt to get a photo of themselves in front of the Eiffel Tower. It describes the inescapable relationship between music and songwriter, which is highly appropriate, as he seems to disappear into the screen frequently.

Regardless, it perfectly fits the dystopian rock that they are known for, and confirms they are a band to look out for, even if you’re not exactly sure what you’re looking at.
