The Psychedelic Furs have shared a visual for their Made of Rain cut “Wrong Train.”
The grayscale clip was directed by award-winning photographer and film director Hans Neleman, who drew inspiration from the paintings of frontman Richard Butler. The clip follows Butler’s journey around a city as it occasionally cuts to footage of him painting his own face. The photos and videos initially produced by Neleman and Butler were then handed over to Peter Sebastian, who digitally edited them for the final cut.
“‘Wrong Train’ explores the theme of a disintegrating relationship and the idea was to deliver something rooted in a more abstract realm rather than illustrating the lyrics literally,” shared Neleman, per Rolling Stone. “I photographed and filmed Richard while painting his face as if he were delivering an art performance.”
“It was a pleasure working along with Hans Neleman on this project,” added Butler. “The creativity Hans, Peter Sebastian, and their team brought shows in every frame. Much like in paintings, imagery in this video is altered to where it is seen in an entirely different way.”
Made of Rain—the band’s first album in 30 years—was released in July 2020. Its 12 tracks included “Don’t Believe,” “You’ll Be Mine,” “No One” and “Come All Ye Faithful.”
