UK psychedelic doom outfit VODUN have released a brand new music video!
The new music video, for the track Bloodstones, is taken from the band’s debut album Possession which was released last year. Speaking about the inspiration behind the track, frontwoman Chantal Brown (Oya) says, “the unbreakable bond between people and their spirit is never more evident than in the attempted removal of the cultural identity from the kin of the Western Coast of Africa. Even today, our eyes bear witness to the Native Americans at Standing Rock, hands still firmly clutching what’s left of their culture and sacred land – even after the undeniable genocide that was brutally cast upon them, giving birth to the most powerful country on Earth. Slavery and genocide made its deep and torrid mark on the psyche of many, however the spirit and essence lives on in all of the corners of where these peoples were forced. Yes, blood runs deep… but spirits are made of stone.”
