Black Orchid Empire Releases New Video Clip 'My Favourite Stranger'


U.K. rock act Black Orchid Empire released a video clip for the new single "My Favourite Stranger," which you can check out in the player above. The song will appear on the band's new album "Yugen," which is set to drop on May 25th via Long Branch Records. Pre-orders for the album can be made at this location.

"The video for My Favourite Stranger is a different feel for us - we really wanted a clean, colourful approach rather than the darker, grittier look of most of our other videos," says Paul Visser, singer and guitarist in Black Orchid Empire. "We found a really cool new studio in Brixton under a railway arch and Canty from Dark North did an awesome job once again. We had a great time jumping around to our own song while he worked his magic! This song is about a friend of mine going through relationship hell. It's about two people that are talking their situation over, but too much ground has opened up between them to even understand each other anymore. They know each other inside and out but have ended up total strangers. Musically it's super fun to play - Dave's bass riff is just ridiculous," adds Paul

Black Orchid Empire create dense, powerful rock music that combines fearless complexity, aggressive heaviness and beautiful, hook-laden melody.
