Epic movie music at its finest. “The Hunted” by Snow Ghosts was featured on the X-Men Apocalypse trailer and rightfully so. Slow build up with very eerie vocals and heart pounding beats that make you feel as if you’re in a epic trailer yourself. The music video isn’t bad either, with nice slo-mo effects and cinematic style visuals that actually make the song a good listen for background noise as well as for a good a watch. If you like epic music than this should definitely be on the top of your list for 2016. Check it out below!
The Hunted’ video was directed by Craig Murray, who has previously worked with the likes of Mogwai and Blood Red Shoes. About the eerie video, the director says “This is a homage to the horror film greats of the 70’s (The Last House On The Left and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) but I wanted it to be fantasy fairy tale take on them whilst still keeping a few rules and clichés. The idea was written as passed to the band very quickly and their response was that I had nailed it. The effects in this film are all practical, built from real things you can pick up and hold. They were then combined together and moved in stop motion often using long exposure photography”.
