music video : Lovelorn Dolls – After Dark

The Belgian goth metal act Lovelorn Dolls have released a new video for “After Dark” which is off their March 2013 release The House of Wonders. The concept and story was arranged by Lovelorn Dolls’ Kristell Lowagie and graphical artist Emily Weeks and the video was animated and directed by Emily Weeks. Fairy tale mythology and imagery are nothing new for Lovelorn Dolls but this video feels very current and fits in nicely with pop culture’s focus on a dark fairy tale aesthetic as seen with the recent release of the trailer for Disney’s Maleficent and the popularity of TV shows like Once Upon a Time and Grimm.
