Maribou State: “Kingdom” - 3 mins 15s

Clever use of vintage film footage ensures this Maribou State promo catches the eye, as well as satisfying fans of Americana and psychedelic flower arrangements. Like a mixed-media trip through time and space, director David Horsburgh's piece finds ten-pin-bowlers in orbit and divers leaping into craters, among other curious sights.

Tying this vintage pageant together is Maribou State's ‘Kingdom' and its tropical soundscape. As warm percussion complements beachside guitar licks, guest vocalists North Downs claim they are "throwing stones from great heights/Here on my throne" - something one is unlikely to hear the Queen utter in public.
