Delicate Steve (Steve Marion) traveled to India to shoot this documentary meets instagram style video for “Redemeer”. Directed by Marion himself and shot on Super 8, the video comprises footage of his travels to the country earlier this year, including Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Goa.
In a press release about the video, Marion comments, “A lot of the footage (all the footage of the children) was from a small village called Shiswad. I got to spend some time there because a friend of mine works for a watershed development non profit organization that is working with the village. We were basically the first people to stay over night to test out their Eco tourism project they were working on. It was surreal. Spent 4 days there, it was one of the many highlights of my trip.”
Delicate Steve has been touring non-stop since the release of his dynamite sophomore album, Positive Force, sharing stages with Sigur Ros, Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In), Girl Talk, Givers, Yeasayer and tUnE-yArDs. Not that it comes as any surprise, Positive Force is positively once of the best albums of the year.
