Clan of Xymox Unveil Dystopian Cyberpunk Video for Their New Single “X-Odus”

In the ever-evolving landscape of post-punk and gothic rock, Clan of Xymox has been a constant presence for four decades. Originally hailing from the Netherlands, the band, fronted by the enigmatic Ronny Moorings, solidified their place in the darkwave pantheon with their 1985 self-titled debut album, which was released by the esteemed independent4AD. Clan of Xymox’s music, a fusion of synth-driven melancholy and haunting atmospheres, captivated a loyal fanbase. Albums such as Medusa and Twist of Shadows emerged as essential albums for those with affinities for lovelorn anthems adrift in darkness and yearning.

Time, that relentless river, has seen members come and go, yet the Clan of Xymox remains ever-evolving, their core essence undiminished. Their latest offering, the EP X-Odus, is but a harbinger of the forthcoming album Exodus. This new single and title track from the EP X-Odus, has been reimagined by the likes of TRAITRS, The Bellwether Syndicate, Principe Valiente, and others, each remix adding a new shade to the band’s dark palette.

The music video for X-Odus, crafted by Zoe Kavanagh, thrusts us into a frenetic, dystopian future. Amidst towering skyscrapers and neon-lit alleyways, martial artists engage in a mesmerizing dance of combat. Stunt performers Jennifer Kilmurray, Phillip Condron, Bianca Castilho, and Daire McMahon exude lethal grace, showcasing remarkable agility and intensity. As they traverse rooftops and hidden pathways, the city’s eerie glow casts long shadows, creating a visual symphony that harmonizes with the song’s relentless beat.

Watch the video for “X-Odus” below:

Metropolis Records will soon release “Exodus,” Clan of Xymox’s 18th album, on June 7th. The record will be available across digital and streaming platforms, with a CD edition for those who prefer physical media.
