The Kills had a little spare time on their hands when they made their way Down Under for their acclaimed set at Splendour In The Grass back in July. Kicking around Melbourne with nothing to do and an overcast sky, they decided to shoot a music video.
“Introducing our new video for ‘Impossible Tracks’! Shot by director Ellis Bahl, at Luna Park – the old, weird, and wonderful amusement park of dreams and nightmares so iconic to Melbourne, Australia,” said singer Alison Mosshart of the video.
“We’d always wanted to shoot there, so on our last tour Down Under, we took this fine opportunity. Welcome to off season… winter time, blistering bitter cold, the park to ourselves all day and night.”
“The lights buzzing, the gears cranking, a hallucinatory stream of whiplash and spin. We shot between bursts of monsoon weather and crooked wind, we rode the rides, played the games, and lost ourselves in the mirror house.”
“Enter in, the guts of the park, through the mouth of lights, Luna’s pearly teeth, past the big bad gaze of those glowing blue eyes… Buckle your belts and take the ride on ‘Impossible Tracks.’” Check out the clip below.
