Nami Posts New Music Video For "Ariadna"

European metal outfit Nami has revealed a video for the song "Ariadna," taken from the recently released album "The Eternal Light of the Unconscious Mind." Check out the clip below, and the band also comments:

"The song 'Ariadna' is based on the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. In our own vision, Ariadna is the main character of the story and she's trapped in a labyrinth instead of Theseus. To reach the exit, she has to follow the light, the sun. She already knows the way, but she needs to rediscover it again to be free. The common thread is that the myth is represented by the alchemical symbol of gold or the sun. Ariadna finds these signs all around the maze she has created. The maze itself is an analogy of all the barriers and challenges that life puts in front of us and we need to overcome.

"The way Nami presents itself visually is something we deem to be really important and it was imperative that we take care of every detail. That's why we decided to shoot the video with Ibon Antuñano Totorika, a prize winning director, and for him to be involved in all stages of the production of the clip. With his guidance we feel we managed to transmit all the energy and emotions we put into this song in a visual way with this video. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!"

"It's not very often you meet a young band who appears to be an established one. That happened to me with Nami," comments director Ibon Antuñano Totorika "In my opinion, the video is following the same structure as the song itself, heavy parts and mellow moments with a kind of progressive atmosphere. Kicking off with frenetic breathless rhythms followed by slowed down parts and long takes, telling the story of Ariadna. Throughout the video I was looking to capture the individual and personal emotions through details, low-key images and creating an intimate look. I am very happy with the result and this is definitely one of my favorite videos."
