VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Ceiling Demons – ‘Lost the Way’

Alternative hip hop duo Ceiling Demons recently released a double A-Side split single with Maggie8 as part of the Come Play With Me Singles Club.  The pair’s dark, experimental edge has meant they’ve gained fans in Tom Robinson and Scroobius Pip, and have been special guests of everyone from Sleaford Mods to De La Soul in recent times.  The new single, ‘Lost the Way,’ continues that experimental tinge, with elements of trip-hop in the mix alongside their always-captivating lyrics.

Psy and Dan explained some of the ideas behind the track: “We live in the Yorkshire Dales so naturally the landscape influences our music.  Feelings of loneliness and directionless sometimes come from it, other times it’s a kind of respect for the vastness and beauty of those rolling hills.  As ever, though, it’s a song to be interpreted however you like.  It’s one of our more positive songs; a little bit of light against the darkness that usually permeates our music, but it’s nice to have a track that calls for a bit of solidarity and progression.”

The new video for ‘Lost the Way’ has once again been directed by Callum Scott-Dyson, who worked with the pair on ‘Stones.’  Unsurprisingly, there’s a similar DIY aesthetic surrounding the clip, mixing both stop-motion animation and live footage into a hypnotic, thought-provoking blend.  Speaking of the video, the duo said: “The video explores the comparisons between the human body and transport, with the use of veins and blood cells corresponding to vehicles, maps and roads.  It digs into the idea of being lost, stuck and unable to move on.  The lack of direction sometimes consumes us in life, so in contrast to the uplifting message of the song, the video illustrates how it can prevent us from making progress.”  Watch below.
