Alabaster DePlume • "Mrs Calamari" • 2022

“Mrs Calamari” also comes with a gorgeous video, which is the directorial debut of Dan “Danalogue” Leavers (member of UK electro/jazz monoliths The Comet Is Coming), shot on 8mm film. Danalogue says: “The film explores the archetypal hero's journey, the symbolism of circles (transformation/death/life cycles). Mrs Calamari is represented as a squid goddess, a teaching of the 'other’. It is essentially a story about growth and being guided by love. I felt strongly about the magical, organic sound of the music, recorded live and to analogue tape. This gave me inspiration to film on Super8, an antiquated format that holds within a mystery and timelessness.”
