The Night Flight Orchestra release animated video for new single “Gemini”

The Night Flight Orchestra have premiered the music video for their new song “Gemini”. The clip was created by artist Elia Cristofoli, aka Solingo. Frontman Björn “Speed” Strid commented:

Elia has done a terrific job capturing the vibe of this song with his amazing animations. He had one month to complete it and worked day and night. This video showcases a relationship drama set in space, with an epic twist. The colors and the characters are amazing and also very mysterious. My personal perception of the animation is a slight He-Man-goes-to-Russia feel (or is it She-Ra??). Absolutely fantastic! Enjoy!”

Cristofoli added:

“When Björn asked me for a fully-cartoon music video in 80’s style, with so many intergalactic babes destroying alien monsters, a joker grin drew on my face… I love 80’s cartoons like He-Man, Ken Shiro, etc. Then David sent me the script with a storyboard. I read their story. These guys are out of control, I thought. Just as I like! I spent a few days studying the design of the characters and the spaceships, then I started drawing like a psychopath. I figure I was amused. I hope NFO fans like the video. Rock on!”

The group’s new album, Amber Galactic, is slated to hit stores on May 19th through Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders are available from the label at this location (physical) and this one (digital).
