Sunken Seas – Cataclysm

Sunken Seas – Cataclysm


A short film by Alexander Hoyles and Ryan Harte


Sunken Seas make a long-overdue return to the visual medium, and given their long absence have failed to disappoint – combining singles “Seesaw” and “Cataclysm” into one short film, Cataclysm; the result premiering on Noisey earlier today (May 5th).

Directed by Alexander Hoyles (PIKDAT Productions) and Ryan Harte (Slow Pulse Studios), Cataclysm draws from all four songs from the Cataclysm EP, but focuses on the underlying themes of both singles “Seesaw” and “Cataclysm”. The aim of the short film is to depict the underlying emotions of the music – following a linear narrative of a man in a depressed cycle.

Key to the story is the feeling that everyone has to put on a brave face for the outside world, but for some, the brave face is quite a burden.

Simply put? “There’s nothing better than writing lyrics and then being able to create a follow-up music video”, to quote director Harte.

Cataclysm is currently streaming via. Noisey and is available for “pay what you want” via. Bandcamp

A huge thank you to NZ on Air for their support in the creation of this video
