Celebrated Irish contemporary folk music band has released a new videoclip titled Suas Síos directed by the talented Mattias Gordon. ‘Suas Síos is a single taken from Kila’s tenth album ‘Kila’, set for release on December 1st, 2014.
Mattias Gordon was recruited through the Radar Music Videos website
where directors from around the world had the opportunity to pitch their ideas to Kíla. Mattias was chosen over pitches from Australia, Spain, Mexico and England for his inventive animations and previous work with Lau and Kathryn Williams.
“I tried to create something new. I always try to find a unique approach for every video,” says Mattias. “I work in different styles and techniques. I try to get the feeling of the song and to translate that into visuals. And it’s a balance how much story the video should have. And how much the story should speak to your right side of the brain or the left. Now when the video is finished and I look at it the story tells me something this: Don’t go blind on one thing. If you open your eyes new things will come to you.”
Kíla’s lead vocalist Rónan Ó Snodaigh describes the song as “Going to find courage, throwing a stone into a river and the thoughts that go with it to be cleansed.”
