Today we're teaming up with Milan, Italy outfit Mellowtoy to exclusively premiere an absolutely crazy new music video for the song "Dead Colours," which has a lot more going on than first meets the eye.

This track comes off the "Lies" album released last year and available at iTunes here.

In the animated clip below, written and directed by The Jack Stupid, a silent creature attempts to bend the laws of nature to feel less lonely.

"Dead Colours" starts from Alan Moore's world and, in particular, from the Watchmen character Dr. Manhattan, an immortal creature that lives in a world that's still subordinated to cruel natural laws.

The protagonist knows that sooner or later, everyone and everything he loves will fade away just in front of his eyes. His fear of lonliness and all his pain for abandon make him interact with world's natural cycle. He slows down the time flowing to have more time to share with his beloved.

At the beginning this could seem a good solution but the plan reveals a huge fail and forces the creature to restore the natural cycle without a possibility to escape from his pain.

Considerations above pain, fear and loneliness seem to be the first and more expected reading of this video, there is also a biographical reference to Mellowtoy's story and the latest leaving of Matt Massa, the historic singer of the band.

It is not a coincidence that in this video you will hear his voice for the last time with Mellowtoy, in a sort of "artistic testament" and as a last goodbye to all his fans before leaving the scene to Simone Cristanelli, Mellowtoy's new singer. "Dead Colours" represents conscience following an environmental sensibility too often neglected for humans' irrationality.
