Brooke Fraser - Psychosocial Video

Brooke Fraser has just dropped the video to her new song, Psychosocial. Apparently Psychosocial was written about facebook stalking, while the video seems to look more at the idea of false idols, in an abstract way. The video was directed by her husband Scott Ligertwood and features robes, javelins, mountains, tattoos, a marble sculpture of a head (Michelangelo's David?), a bullet necklace, and a zippo lighter, it sort of reminds me of the opening scene of Prometheus.

Switchfoot, NewWorldSon, Gungor, HalfNoise, Canon Blue, Brady Toops, Omega Levine, Late 80′s Mercedes and Edge Kingsland are just some of the artists being announced for the all new Festival One.

Festival One will be held at Mystery Creek, Hamilton, on Auckland Anniversary Weekend, January 23-26, 2015.

"Festival One is picking up on the strong desire for the continuation of a multi-day Christian Festival since the demise of the much loved Parachute Festival." says Festival Director Graham Burt. The impetus and planning is being provided by representatives from a wide range of churches and church based organisations.

"This is a whole new Festival, with fantastic artists, lots of opportunities for the creative arts and some other surprises. For instance on one night we are having a massive Argentinian style BBQ and will be providing free BBQ'd meat for the whole site! How good will that be! A short film competition and festival. An Instagram art display. And lots more"
