The Lion's Daughter Posts New Video Clip For "Swann"

St. Louis stark black doom troupe The Lion's Daughter recently completed a video for “Swann.” Directed by Brain Cummings, produced by Adam Taylor, and with art direction by Josh Rowan, the strikingly grim eight-plus minute production is loosely centered around news stories of those mentally ill who havae been locked up and sentenced to death.

Elaborates vocalist/guitarist Rick Giordano, “Imagine trying to make sense of being kept in a cell by people who intend to kill you when you can’t even understand what it is you’ve done wrong. Working with Josh — who did the album artwork — and Brain, we wanted to try and capture this isolation and confusion as simply as possible by contrasting footage of a cold, dark enclosure with a free, wandering eye which is outside and unrestrained. Whether these images are dreams, memories, or a reality is left unclear, just as it might be in that person’s mind.”
