Produced by Deity’s Muse and Dead Letter Circus guitarist Clint Vincent, Ennui sees the South African progressive alt-rock unit on a song crafting high, delivering fiery, emotional riffs with dynamic, potent grooves, inspired by the collective chaos of the current times. Exploring themes surrounding climate change, anxiety, cancel culture, loss and polarisation, Ennui is a salient reality check buoyed by hope and the desire for balance.
“Into Their Clutches”, the first single is a melodic alternative rock powerhouse featuring soaring rhythms and guitarwork with a sweeping, anthemic chorus. The dulcet vocals offer a balanced study of the cogs that keep the wheels of political polarisation turning. Easily one of the most arresting and important songs Deity’s Muse has released thus far.
Wayne Boucher from Deity’s Muse comments on the video for “Into Their Clutches”
“This is unlike any video we’ve ever made. Our intention was to come up with an alluring metaphor for the current state of polarisation and collective click-bait thinking driving modern society. We wanted to tell a captivating story in an eerie and cinematic style. Every single shot was meticulously planned beforehand to best represent the lofty subject matter in the lyrics and the flow of the music. I’m really pleased with the results.”
