BAEBLE FIRST PLAY: 'Stay Down' by Fire To The Stars

Today we're premiering "Stay Down," the new video from Fire To The Stars. The Melbourne-based collection of Australians and ex-pat Swedes blur the lines between music video and short film, as the video, directed by Kyle V. James and Michael Bourne, features excerpts from the award-winning short film The Death Drive.

Let's be honest, it's super depressing. The video follows a young guy who experiments with different ways to commit suicide including setting himself on fire, jumping off a rural mountain, and jumping off a bridge (which, I don't understand why the woman who catches him at the end is laughing, because this clearly self-destructive dude almost just killed himself). Needless to say, the visuals are emotionally stirring - when you watch a close up shot of a man's eyes as he burns to death, you're going to feel uncomfortable. And I think that's why this video is such a gem - because not many people would have the guts to go that far and capture something so brutal. It holds a lot of dark and honest moments, like when the words, "Why Am I Doing This? flicker backwards on the screen. As for the song, it's pretty sparse and melancholy. It consists of mainly light acoustic guitar and distant vocals. The track is off of their full length debut, Made of Fire.
