Andre Mistier, AKA the Adversary, introduces listeners to two prominent characters from his new EP, Chapter 1: The Ruins in this dark synthpop song and video bearing one of their names, "Maybelline."
Mistier told us a bit more about the concept:
"Chapter 1: The Ruins begins the story of Cutty and Maybelline. It's set in the future, in the shadows of an oppressive dystopian society. We follow them as everything they've known is now gone.
Shot on location in NYC and in Silver City, New Mexico (thanks to our director Stephen Dirkes, Peter Bill, the University of New Mexico, Silver City, and our editor Behn Fannin).
As the title of the EP suggests, this is the first of many stories and chapters to come about Cutty and Maybelline, and this song is the centerpiece to this first chapter. I love that this song "Maybelline" is basically about dancing as an answer to things. Love, loss, and the end of the world. Dance the ruins away!"
Chapter 1: The Ruins was released June 4 via Uncanney Valley. Purchase it on iTunes.
