Oakland post-punk three piece Ötzi mourn those lost in the Ghostship fire with their video for ‘Ghosts’

Oakland California’s dark post-punk three piece Ötzi are sharing with us the  the video for title track is from their recently released album, ‘Ghosts’  released this past September on Near Dark and Last Hour Records.

The the video is a mournful procession resonating with the immeasurable loss felt by not only those in the Bay Area, but the entirety of the international music and arts scene.

Camera work for ‘Ghosts’ by photographer Kevin Brown and videographer Rissy, with additional camera work by Post-Consumer and Akiko,

The band go to to explain their concept for the video:

The video for Ötzi’s “Ghosts” was created in memory of those who died in the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland last December 2, 2016. Some of those lost in the fire were friends, some were acquaintances, and some we only knew through their art. On the anniversary of their passing, we are joined by their loved ones and survivors in creating tribute to them, and speak to them in the way they spoke to us. This video is about anger and regret, the intersection between public and private mourning, and the thinning of the veil between the living and the dead.
