Sawthis debut 360° video for “Start A New Game”, detail new album Babhell

Sawthis have issued a 360° music video for their new track “Start A New Game”, listen below. The clip was directed by UnderRoom Studios. Bassist Gaetano Ettorre comments:

“‘For the ‘Start A New Game’ music video, we created a ‘modern square’ full of confusion and solitude. This square seems crowded by virtual people projected on the protagonist through the monitors, but at the end it’s just a bare and sad room. The protagonist can’t stop watching the monitors as he is essentially fed by that media, so he eventually becomes a puppet under virtual oppression.”

The song is taken from the group’s upcoming record Babhell. Of the album, Ettorre states:

Babhell, in general, touches upon themes of poor human communication and its negative result. Everyone is talking, and no one is listening or looking at what’s happening right in front of them. Ultimately, in a world where everyone is talking and no one is listening, honest dialogue becomes impossible and thoughts become just noise like a Babel, a hellish Babel, hence the name Babhell. If I had to choose a term to describe the sound of the record, it would be ‘multi-emotional chaos’. Our music is a balance of rage and happiness, resignation and reaction, love and hate-Babhell represents a perfect mix of everything.”

Babhell is slated for release on March 24th through Mighty Music. The effort was produced by the band, with mixing and mastering handled by Sickboy Studios.
