The Band Explains: Kraków Loves Adana - 'Never Quite Right' (Video)
Deniz Cicek of Hamburg, Germany based indie band Kraków Loves Adana speaks to us about the visuals for 'Never Quite Right' featuring gripping footage from the 1962 classic horror movie "Carnival of Souls".
'Never Quite Right' is a remarkable and intimate offering displaying a haunting, mellow, atmosphere through whirring, looped production. Cicek's mesmerising throaty vocals are adeptly equipped to tell a moving and emotive lyrical story, showing that Kraków Loves Adana - in their entirety - are a duo who unveil deep upon depth of brooding goodness through a clever use of understated yet transfixing arrangements.
Kraków Loves Adana Explains:
Can you talk us through the footage used in 'Never Quite Right'?
The footage is from the classic horror movie "Carnival of Souls". It is about a young organist who, after a traumatic incident becomes drawn to a mysterious abandoned carnival.
How do you feel the footage compliments the song?
The footage fits the mood of the song and also reflects our love for horror movies.
Did you play around with different ideas for the video before finding the right fit?
No, I immediately thought of "Carnival of Souls" and was actually surprised that no other artist used the footage before.
Tell us about the ideas/ themes/ imagery in the song?
'Never Quite Right' is about the constant battle between 'want' and 'need', the space between what you are and what you long to be and what you long to bring into the world.
I feel like this is a constant war in my mind but, the older I get, the more I learn to let it inspire me and to not let it hinder my growth.
What do you hope people might take away from watching the video?
I hope that people can relate to the message and the mood of the song and the original movie.
