French sludge metal band Erlen Meyer have released a video for “Agatha”, which comes from their upcoming self-titled debut album (out May 20th via Shelsmusic). The song is a tribute to mystery novelist Agatha Christie. The video was directed by Pierre Magnol, who has shot videos for each song on the debut album, and was then edited by Erlen Meyer drummer Karol Diers, who mixed in live show takes.
Vocalist Olivier Lacroix comments, “Agatha is about a writer facing a lack of inspiration. Time plays an important part because the protagonist has to hand over her novel to her editor, in good time. There is no beginning and no end, pictures illustrate what she feels. The images are there to help drown the audience in our musical atmosphere. We made the video in macro in order to reinforce that immersion and we hope, for the viewer, it’s an additional door to walk through and explore in order to find our music. We hope people will be captivated and want to carry on their experience in front of the stage with us.”
