Frontman Richard Butler said: “‘Wrong Train’ continues the black and white textured, mysterious feel of the previous videos from Made Of Rain. The creativity Hans, Peter Sebastian and their team brought shows in every frame.
“Much like in paintings, imagery in this video is altered to where it is seen in an entirely different way.”
Restricted by Covid-19 limitations, the video was shot in Neleman’s home-studio in Connecticut and at Michelson Studios in upstate New York.
After the shoot, the photographic material was handed over and digitally manipulated by Peter Sebastian. Neleman photographed and filmed Richard while painting his face as if he were delivering an art performance. The Psychedelic Furs play seven rescheduled UK shows during September and October as part of the European leg of the Made Of Rain Tour. ‘Wrong Train’ is the latest song to be lifted from Made Of Rain and turned into a music video, alongside ‘Come All Ye Faithful’, ‘No-One’, ‘Don’t Believe’ and ‘You’ll Be Mine.’
Watch the video below. The Psychedelic Furs have teamed up with award-winning filmmaker Hans Neleman to produce a music video for their single ‘Wrong Train’.
Taken from the band’s new album Made Of Rain, which became the band’s second highest-charting UK Album, is an eye opening single which explores the theme of a disintegrating relationship and the idea was to deliver something rooted in a more abstract realm rather than illustrating the lyrics literally.
