Liima released their latest album ‘1982’ a few weeks back, but now they’ve got a clip for another one of its tracks.
The new video for ‘Life Is Dangerous’ was shot in Paris and was originally going to centre around bungee jumping (which, yes, could have been quite dangerous). Due to logistics though, the idea was abandoned and after a whole minute of brainstorming the band came upon a new idea: snakes are scary! And so the clip for ‘Life Is Dangerous’ features a bunch of snakes slithering all over them as they try to relax and try to play. Hopefully they weren’t venomous.
Director Hugo Jouxtel said of the clip: “Danger is a fantasy, an idea, not much different than a dream. Danger is an accident waiting to happen and often triggered by our most profound fears. So this video takes us to a place connected with the subconscious. Is it real? Is it only a dream? And in the end, what’s the difference?”
Liima are heading out on a tour of Europe early next year. After touring around the continent, the band will head to the UK to play a short string of dates at the end of January and early February 2018. Tickets are on sale now.
