The Video Explained: Steady Holiday - 'Terror' (Single)
LA-based artist Steady Holiday (Dre Babinski) shares the visuals for her kooky orchestral pop single, 'Terror'.
'Terror' is the title track taken from Steady Holiday's debut EP which will be released by Infinite Best next month, digitally and on CD, (the latter combined with her debut LP 'Under the Influence'). The track (and video) take on a stunning and shrewd approach to kitsch as Steady Holiday plays with spooky arrangements, dramatic, cinematic 60s influences and a hugely ironic sentiment, delivered through a subdued yet stirring vocal - effective in its entirety.
Steady Holiday Explains:
About the video Dre Babinski says, "I wanted to make something that combined totally overt absurdity with the grooves of fear and xenophobia that have been deepening in our country." She adds, "Both the video and song describe a character that is threatened by an unknown, and thinks/acts before taking the time to understand. It is upsetting to see that kind of reactiveness becoming common and accepted at every level, not just in our government but also in our homes and communities. It's a bit of a cautionary tale. Also, my director (Joseph Armario) and I really wanted to make a monster."
