Xeno & Oaklander: Insomnia // Video

From the just released, excellent latest album of theirs, Hypnos, Xeno & Oaklander, reveal a new video for standout track, Insomnia, a posh number which exhibits the duo's exquisite knack for analog electronica.

The clip was directed and edited by vocalist, Liz Wendelbo, and arises like an obscure, yet, fine match to the music's sophistication.

"Between waking and dreaming, Insomnia explores that very moment when the mind slips into the surreal," Wendelbo says of the song's inspiration. "In this sci-fi inspired video, we see Xeno of Xeno & Oaklander roam around the grounds of an abandoned mansion by the sea. Using a dead tree branch as a shamanistic communication device she is summoned into outer space by alien life-forms in the shape of vintage perfume bottles."

Hypnos is out now on Dais Records.
