Lost Valentinos – Serio Video

“Serio” is the first track to receive the video treatment from the long awaited debut LP of Sydney five-piece Lost Valentinos.

Embracing the South American heritage of the brothers Santamaria (bassist Pat and guitarist Andrew) the band don tribal headdresses and Incan-style paraphernalia or what I like to call “suitable attire for getting Pagan in the woods”. Director Dave Ma, the man behind multiple Foals film clips and the brother of guitarist Jono succinctly captures the visual aesthetic the band have so carefully crafted thus far – it’s all blackened trees, skulls, journeymen, sand dunes and gold dust – and fuck it looks good.

I first called Serio “the sunshine inflected slow burner to the best hands-in-the-air beach party you’ve ever been to” and upon watching the film clip I could say much the same thing. It’s both refreshing and rare that a band is so confidently singular in their sound, visual identity and ethos whether that be animal monikers, other-worldly cover art, or fantastical back stories. Drums not dead, and neither is the magic.

Lost Valentino’s debut album “Cities of Gold” (Produced by Ewan Pearson) is out in June.
