Stargazed Projection Art + Music Festival is proud to present:
Fierce Mild / Solaris Video Launch and Residency - 18th & 25th April at The Gasometer
“It’s like Mogwai or Explosions In The Sky but with actual vocals, and if that doesn’t sound amazing to you, I don’t know what will!” - Kill Your Stereo
Solaris, the latest single by Fierce Mild, was written entirely as a response to a dream journal. The result is something that makes sense in the moment but leaves you with a feeling of not knowing entirely what happened. Continually playing with the idea of conscious and subconscious interaction, the video explores a tumultuous psyche with the inspiration of a haunting murder which took place on the Great Ocean Road.
The video as well as Fierce Mild’s performance is like being caught in a very beautiful yet very strange dream; one that is as dynamic as it surreal. The sextet bombards audiences with a continuous, cinematic psycho-thriller from start-to-finish.
Genre-wandering walls of psych, shoegaze, post-rock, and electro-acoustic dub are delivered with a folk-tinged Australian lyricism, whilst the stunning surrealist-horror projection works of live video artist Stephanie Peters are matched to beautiful dreamscapes of sound art and electric cello between songs that bind the music together into a singular cohesive narrative.
"I totally see the Gareth Liddiard comparisons! I found myself being constantly impressed and surprised from start to finish." - Veronica Milson (JJJ)
Fierce Mild are joined by a stellar lineup of local artists and VJs TBA shortly
