In what is likely one of the most ambitious and powerful videos we’ve shown on this platform, we are excited to bring “Far From Ideal” remixed by Chelsea Wolfe with the accompanying video by Amber Beaton. Of the video, Beaton states, “My main goal was to match the energy both artists brought but to also turn it into a love letter to indigenous women, particularly Māori women who are still feeling the effects of colonization and forced religion today. Our spirituality was made illegal and this video calls to summon back our own indigenous gods, many of whom were human like Hine Nui Te Po depicted in this film”

Set agains the backdrop of razor sharp guitar riffs and a punishing rhythm section the duo Divide and Dissolve continue to push boundaries and create vital art.
