POLITIK just released a new single. The outrageously beautiful and moody track, ‘Rage On’ is the second single from their upcoming full-length album. The ethereal rock trio teamed up with director and producer, Dirk van Niekerk and film editor, Robert Hannah to produce an exquisite music video to go with the single’s release. The music video paints the picture perfectly to match their new single’s overall sound and feeling. ‘Rage On’ is one of the songs that POLITIK composed while traveling the coasts of Europe, Australia, Asia, the South Pacific, the Caribbean, and the American east coast. After two years of sharing their music abroad, Nicola Mayer (Vocals & Keys), Kyle Kokott (Drums) and Michael Fourie (Guitar), have returned to South Africa to record their début album, which would be released next month.

‘Rage On’ is a song that describes our want to push on through more challenging times. “The song was written during a time of introspection and a moment of silence which lead us to write about this overwhelming urge to overcome any space of darkness we face in our lives from time to time”, says Nicola.
The visual representation used in the music video captures this as two figures who seem to almost melt away, finally find each other again and symbolically blend together to keep on going and push through the pain and struggle. It implies that nothing is impossible for the souls who rage on and never give up. The track ties in with the album’s theme of seeking answers throughout life and love. The surreal use of lighting, body contours and dripping paint beautifully supplements this creative kaleidoscope of visuals and sound.
