Last week AKING released the first in a series of two South African New Wave Cinema music videos by filmmakers Ferdinand van Zyl and Barry de Villiers. 

First in line was the dizzying video Prey to the Birds. This harrowing video of the opening track to the band’s SAMA winning album, Morning After, is one of those you have to see to believe. And after you watched it you won’t believe what you’ve seen.

View In Loving Memory…

The exquisite music video to the closing track of Morning After, In Loving Memory, is out now.  This film noir music video is visually just as poignant as the song, with the lyrics painting its pictures.

View In Loving Memory below!

“Wouldn't say it to just anyone 
Lying on the edge of the bed,
Mind already made up
Leave, I need to leave
Make new roots along the way
Best intentions went to hell and gone
Never felt so right and so damn wrong all at once
Made a narrow escape.

From your smothering embrace
In loving memory of what could've been
A moment of silence sinks in
Shake me by the shoulders, it‘s only a dream
We carry our homes with us 
Salvation is on the run
From time to time we catch a glimpse of what it cedes us

Unlock the gates
For uncertainty awaits
Doesn't matter where we end up
There are repercussions if you become your reputation
Why hesitate?
Why get lost in yesterday?
In loving memory of what could've been
A moment of silence sinks in
Shake me by the shoulders, it‘s only a dream
We carry our homes with us
We carry our homes with us.”
