Alternative art-rock band RÊVE have just released a new music video for “Marionettes” from their debut album La Marionnette . The Baltimore-based quintet blend elements of classical, indie rock, and avant-garde sounds on the new record that is set to be released on 9/20. Generally, the group’s music videos all link together to tell a bigger story, but for “Marionettes” they took a different approach thanks to chance meeting with a UK film director.

“Natasha Marburger of Beyond Illusion Productions in London was working on a story for a film and after hearing an early version of ‘Marionettes’ though a mutual friend, was inspired to make alterations inspired by the song and lyrics,” says vocalist Athena Hiotis. “It was a very humbling experience to work trans-atlantic on this project and to know that the song had such an influence on the story.“
La Marionnette was engineered by Tony Correlli of Deep End Studio and will be available via iTunes on 9/20.
