AVKRVST drops music video for “Arcane Clouds”

Author Hernan Osuna - 8.5.2023

Norwegian progressive rock group AVKRVST has shared the music video for “Arcane Clouds“, the second single from their debut album “The Approbation”, out June 16 via InsideOut Music. You can watch the clip below.

“The Approbation” is a concept album about a bleak soul who is left solely with his thoughts, isolated in a cabin deep into the dark forests, far away from civilization. The 49 minutes long concept album contains 7 songs, which take the listener through the thoughts of a man struggling towards the acceptance of death, being hauled into the abyss.

The band comments on the clip: “The video(s) are shot at a beautiful location in Elverum, Norway and the main character(s) are visually inspired by ‘The Lovers’ (René Magritte). We wanted to capture the mood of the record and bring the viewers further into our story. It’s portraying the lonesome soul and his minds, towards the end of life. We wanted to have still shots and no moving camera to make it all seem like the time goes slowly by, and just portraying everyday chores at the cabin. He is followed around by his mind (the second character) waiting for his time. The ending is a visual metaphor of the character finally accepting death, laying down into the bed and leaving earth.”
