Today, Earth Tongue have released a new song, 'Miraculous Death' (recorded with the help of Jonathan Pearce of The Beths) , paired with a self-directed music video that is nothing short of a dramatic, cinematic paragon. Starring the duo, Gussie Larkin (Mermaidens) and Ezra Simons (Soft Bait) running around a lavish mansion syphoning an air of 60's or 80's-inspired horrors such as Daughters of Darkness or The Shining.
"When I went to the states a few years ago I visited The Stanley Hotel from The Shining - not the one they shot the film in, the ACTUAL hotel that Stephen King stayed in which inspired the novel. That was a cool spooky experience that lingered in my mind for a few years after. I’d been daydreaming about finding a location like that and had even looked into filming at The Chateau Tongariro, although that didn’t work out.
I found this house on a shoot location website and it felt like striking gold! It literally ticked every box - the mini hedge maze, the fountains, the winding staircases and OTT dining room. It’s usually a wedding venue but the people who owned the place were very generous with letting us run wild for a day.” — Gussie Larkin
