Fotocrime: Invisible

With an almost post apocalyptic feel which comes corresponding to the song and entire album's mood, a new video by R. Patterson's Fotocrime has been just revealed. Invisible is the opening cut to the band's excellent sophomore full length, South of Heaven, out since March 2020 through Profound Lore.

"In mid-March, as the world closed in upon itself and I watched the world succumb to the pandemic, my tours following the release of South Of Heaven were canceled and I absconded home from California," Patterson comments. "Quickly, cities closed down and the roads were empty… I thought of Robert Neville, the Omega Man, roaming the streets alone. I enlisted the help of videographer Nick Thieneman and walked the empty streets of Louisville, then handed the footage to editor Joe Watson who completed this vision of the last person on Earth."

A hard hitting opener, Invisible is a fine piece of variances and contradictions, described by Patterson as being about "the experience alternately feeling unseen and too seen. It is about moments along a journey of control, chaos, helplessness, and clarity." The song features Hayden Menzies of Metz on drums, and sets the exemplary dark rock 'n' roll of South of Heaven off to a strong start.

R. Patterson remarks: "Since we filmed this months ago, there has been loss of people I love, struggle both globally and in my communities, uncertainty as the pandemic grows in the States with no leadership, racist police violence and federal fascist action that has invigorated the Movement for Black Lives, and where once I stalked these streets alone for this video I later marched in solidarity while demanding justice for Breonna Taylor. Time moves in a different way than it did a few months ago."
