French/Brazilian Electronic  Artist Dream Koala Releases New Video ‘Earth’

Dream-KoalaDream Koala is proud to present the new video for ‘EARTH’, the lead song from the French/Brazilian electronic artist’s ‘Earth. Home. Destroyed’ EP originally released last year.
One of the most ambitious and awe-inspiring videos of 2015 so far, it see DK (real name Yndi Ferreira) partner with CGI and visual effect studio ‘Fabulous 3D’ AKA duo Adrien Peze and Albin Merle. They first worked with Dream Koala on the video for his single ‘Odyssey’ from his self-titled EP out in September 2013.
Together they have developed a powerful and distinctly Gallic dreamy digital futurist aesthetic. As soon as Yndi began writing his new EP ‘Earth. Home. Destroyed.’ he knew he had to collaborate with them again.
“As a child I spent days drawing fantastical creatures and impossible landscapes, my imagination was an endless playground where I loved losing myself. When I met Adrien and Albin, we immediately understood each other. With ‘Odyssey’ we wanted very contemplative and surrealistic images, whereas for ‘Earth’ we knew from the screenplay we had to add more dynamism, build a sort of blockbuster. The lyrics are somewhat prophetic and mystical, they are the starting point of the story. When I wrote ‘Kingdoms and cathedrals under the ocean’, I had very specific images in mind and Fabulous knew how to transpose them to visuals”
It is the story of a post-apocalyptic world. Harmony with nature is broken and the last humans powerlessly watch their own downfall and await the end of the world. It is an ode to nature and a critique of the modern world, influenced by science fiction and cosmic mysticism.
“What I wanted to illustrate through the words and the music video is the fragility of the human race against the titanic forces of nature. Our anthropocentrism makes us forget that nature will eventually annihilate the men but that life always will pave a path through the ages.”
