Soft Riot’s “Modern Dread” Video

28 November 2014

“Modern Dread” is a track off Some More Terror, a release featuring 11 tracks of Soft Riot‘s more filmic, instrumental synthesized soundscapes.

Serving up parts of psychedelic dream collages, abstract horror and a bit of absurdist black humour, this short film for the track comes with inspiration from the more darker, surreal Kids In The Hall sketches, Wim Wenders, Ian Svenonius, the French commentator from The Day Today, film collage of Kenneth Anger, bad subtitling on foreign films and stilted acting. And yes, perhaps a bit Lynchian, a tag that most viewers may tie this to.
