https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPNATCOhiSs Hey all! If you are reading this you are probably watching our new music video! Mick has taken Bron and myself months to put together and was by far the most involved project we have worked on together to date. Bron’s work on this clip is beyond words, we had no financial or label support creating this video but here we are! and so far the video seems to be a hit. Director/ visual artist Bron Flutterby has once again joined forces with musician Bastian Killjoy to produce his latest film clip Mick. Taken from Bastian’s latest full length album Sides Of Me, which is out now. Featuring an array of breathtaking visuals and stunning cinematography, Mick is an odyssey through the astral plain, as we are guided to the far side of space and invited inside the prismatic imaginations of Bastian Killjoy and Bron Flutterby. With Mick’s transient clarity having a similar texture to a film shot in mid 1980’s, it would appear that Mick has always existed in the back recesses of our cognitive minds. Mick was written for a fan named Mick during Bastian’s Pozible campaign in 2014, which saw the production of the album Sides Of Me on vinyl, and is the second film clip taken from the album. With the single Tie Me To This being the first released in November of 2014. The single Mick is currently available for free download via TripleJ Unearthed We hope you guys enjoy all the hard work we have put into this! I would like to thank Tim Hanson for all his hard work on helping me finish this album. It has certainly paid off. I want to thank Bron Flutterby for her countless hours of shooting/ editing the video and last but not least I would like to thank all of you for your support during my Pozible campaign. We wouldn’t be able to make this happen without you! BAS
As a big thank you to all of you who supported my Pozible campaign earlier in the year, Bass Estrada and I have released a new EP for FREE! I wanted to give something back to you guys for making my last album possible. So It is that we present to you ‘The You & Me EP’
