NOVEMBER 12th, 2019 (PRAGUE, CZECHIA). Prague based dark indie pop duo The Envlps releases a new video for a single called Last Star directed by filmmakers Mika Johnson (director of the web series The Amerikans and VRwandlung: a virtual reality adaptation of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis.) and Martin Schumet.
Video hints at the ways in which pop culture mutates both those who join its ranks, as performers, and those who consume it. By manipulating and rearranging images of Marilyn Monroe, the video both reproduces the performer’s own struggle with her image and examines the ways in which audiences influence the life of a performer. She is the Last Star symbolizing that all images are beyond our control; once created, they have the potential to destroy us.
