New music video shot at Taylors Mistake

Dutch musician, The Psychedelic Birthday Party aka Kevyn van der Linden, has released a new video directed by Christchurch filmmaker Martin Sagadin.

Till I Meet You Again was directed Sagadin, who has worked with well known Kiwi musicians Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams and Nadia Reid.

Van der Linden aka The Psychedelic Birthday Party creates dark pop, inspired by 90s nostalgia and "self-destructive romanticism".

He released his debut single Bad Blood in June last year, and about a year later he’s just put out his second single, Till I Meet You Again.

The video was shot at Taylors Mistake in Christchurch.

Van der Linden “stumbled upon” Sagadin’s work via Christchurch singer-songwriter Mousey, aka Sarena Close.

Sagadin directed the video for Mousey's Silver Scroll-nominated song Extreme Highs.

At first van der Linden was unsure about how the pair would work together from opposite sides of the globe, but it all went smoothly, he said. 

"We had a few brainstorm sessions via video call.

"It just felt right … Martin professionally and methodically worked through the process of creating and perfectly executing it.”

Sagadin's crew included DOP Kirk Pflaum and photographer Ella Waswo, with costume by Steven Junil Park. Together they managed to capture a mesmerising performance from acclaimed dancer, Josie Archer.
