Filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska previously used music from Vancouver indie band Fake Shark in their screen shockers, and now they’ve helmed the video for the group’s new song. We’ve got the exclusive first look after the jump.
In the clip seen below for Fake Shark’s “Invincible,” “the band personifies their interpretation of invincible—shattering the obstacles around them and pushing through fears, like putting on a stellar performances while wrapped in snakes,” according to the official description. The Soskas tell RUE MORGUE, “After working with Fake Shark for over a decade on our films, a collaboration in the form of a music video was many years in the process. With everything we’ve been through together, it only seems fitting that the song would be titled ‘Invincible.’ Broken glass, smashing bottles, snakes and high-fashion looks with tons of character—it was a privilege to work with one of the greatest bands to ever come out of Canada.”
Fake Shark lead singer Kevvy adds, “It’s been an honor to have my dear friends the Soska Sisters finally direct a video for my band. They’re incredibly talented visionaries, and we’d been batting around the idea of doing a video since I was making music for their incredible film AMERICAN MARY. ‘Invincible’ was the perfect moment and sound for us to finally collaborate in this way. We’re all still standing after all that’s been thrown at us.”
Fake Shark’s songs have been featured in TV series including Showtime’s DICE and Freeform’s FAMOUS IN LOVE. For more on the band, check out their official website.
