New EP. Micr.Pluto – Dead Rainbow

Earlier this week we got hold of Micr.Pluto’s lead single off his much-anticipated EP, Dead Rainbow, along with an otherworldy video to accompany the drop. After whetting our appetites, he’s now dropped the full six track release. ‘Dead Rainbow explores the concept of being in the balance of 2 different extremes, sort of like bright colours in a dark place… The process of creating this project stems from exploring this concept through sketches/visual artwork, experimenting with and fusing different genres, sounds and alternative styles of music.’ ‘I worked with a few other musicians to steer the results in a different...

Apnea, a short film by Vokos, co-written by Caitlin Cloete, explores the inner turmoil and suffering of metaphoric suffocation and the feeling of claustrophobia within a relationship. ‘WHEN SLEEP IS NO LONGER AN ESCAPE. Apnea is a film that presents an abstract expression of the lack of air in a suffocated relationship. A woman’s journey – when she is forced to accept her own lack of courage and frail mental state.
