Parisian synth-rockers The Blackmordia have been celebrating the release of their latest video for single XX. The video dark synthpop anthem blends religious imagery with sexualised S&M iconography for an intriguing aesthetic result inspired by classic eighties music videos.
The track and video are heavily influenced by lead singer Peter Moisan’s own life experiences, regarding mental health issues and their effect on love and relationships. He notes: “It’s an open letter to Love. Love can make you the happiest person on earth but also the saddest. The song explores the different stages of love and the behaviours lovers display. Sensuality, temptation, culpability, remorse.”
The band’s drummer and founder $ofiane Seddiki says “’XX” is one of the songs we wrote first, it’s a perfect reflection of The Blackmordia’s sound and our influences, from 70s black music, 80’s rock-pop, New Wave and Glam.”
The group have supported KISS, Bring Me the Horizon, and Tokio Hotel and have gone from strength to strength since their debut single God, released in 2018. The band are currently working on their debut album. Stream the video for XX above.
