Zeitgeist Zero release new single and video - Plastic Diamonds
On May 2nd, juggernauts of the UK goth scene Zeitgeist Zero release a new single and music video for the song ‘Plastic Diamonds’ from their highly anticipated 4th album ‘Meddling With The Forces’.
‘Plastic Diamonds’ is a song about the perils and pitfalls of fame. After all a gilded cage is still a cage. The pop melodic sensibilities of the vocals add contrast to the darker themes of the lyrics and the music features heavy guitar riffing layered over dark wave synths and pounding drums that is Zeitgeist Zero’s signature sound. Lead singer Teresa was inspired to write the lyrics after reading an article about reality TV stars. It described the devastating impact that fame had upon them and especially during their subsequent struggle to return to normal life when the show ends and the media interest has evaporated. In many cases this has led to severe depression and in some cases even suicide.
The music video was directed and edited by Teresa, who is also a graduatefilmmaker. It was shot over the space of two years due to shooting restrictions and delays caused by the global pandemic.
