Moonlight Haze premiered “Animus”, the first single and title track of their new record, set to be released on March 18th 2022 through Scarlet Records). Video clip directed by Marco Falanga & Beatrice Demori.
Chiara Tricarico, frontwoman & lyricist:
“We chose the title track as the first single because it best represents the record’s essence. A mix of symphonic, power and epic elements, and a choice of words that encourages you to work hard and never give up. “Animus” takes on the nuances of the Latin word of courage and willpower.”
Marco Falanga, guitarist and co-director of the video with Beatrice Demori :
“While we were thinking about the meaning of the song, the analogy with a sport was the first idea that sprung to mind. Therefore, we decided to involve Nicholas Visintin – an athlete of the Italian parkour national team. We’ve been listening to the song together, surprised at how much its message matched the ethics of this sport perfectly: having a goal, overcoming obstacles and often falling and getting hurt, but always struggling to get up and fight till the end.”
