The Night Flight Orchestra have premiered the music video for their new song “Gemini”. The clip was created by artist Elia Cristofoli, aka Solingo. Frontman Björn “Speed” Strid commented:

Elia has done a terrific job capturing the vibe of this song with his amazing animations. He had one month to complete it and worked day and night. This video showcases a relationship drama set in space, with an epic twist. The colors and the characters are amazing and also very mysterious. My personal perception of the animation is a slight He-Man-goes-to-Russia feel (or is it She-Ra??). Absolutely fantastic! Enjoy!”

Cristofoli added:

“When Björn asked me for a fully-cartoon music video in 80’s style, with so many intergalactic babes destroying alien monsters, a joker grin drew on my face… I love 80’s cartoons like He-Man, Ken Shiro, etc. Then David sent me the script with a storyboard. I read their story. These guys are out of control, I thought. Just as I like! I spent a few days studying the design of the characters and the spaceships, then I started drawing like a psychopath. I figure I was amused. I hope NFO fans like the video. Rock on!”

The group’s new album, Amber Galactic, is slated to hit stores on May 19th through Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders are available from the label at this location (physical) and this one (digital).
