Behind The Scenes Photos of Poets of the Fall's
My Dark Disquiet Music Video

In late September, Poets of the Fall released a music video for the track, My Dark Disquiet, a song which also prominently in Control. That's not the end of it though as, a few weeks later, the band shared a number of photos on Facebook of the behind the scenes work that went on to bring the gripping music video to life.

While the music video and Control shared many similarities such as the "New Weird" vibe, certain vibe, camerawork choices, and familiar props, it can also be considered to be its own separate entity. The piece ties into a style that the band has incorporated into their work since 2014, featuring connections to past videos such as Daze, Choice Millionaire, and False Kings.

Interested in checking out how My Dark Disquiet came to be? Check out the photos below:

A little about the crew behind the piece: The music video was based on a story by Marko Saaresto and Miika Hakala, the latter also being the video's director, cinematographer and editor. Graphics and sound design were by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen". Make-up was by Iida Savimäki and costumes by Kupla erikoisompelimo. The location manager and still photography was by Tiia Öhman, and the Gaffer was Henri Ilanen. Starring in the video alongside the band were Johanna Ruonala and Katri Swan. Providing light and grip gear were Studiovarustamo and G-Studio.

The latest music video was recorded at Konepajan Bruno, a flea market and venue situated in Alppila.

My Dark Disquiet, along with the Instrumental, Radio Edit, and Tim Skold Remix, is now available to buy via Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play, or streamed on Spotify or YouTube.

A bit of information about the band's history: Poets of the Fall has had a long history with Remedy, which officially started back in 2003 with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. For the game, POTF created their first song, Late Goodbye based on a poem by Sam Lake. Later, the band returned for Alan Wake, creating the custom songs The Poet and the Muse and Children of the Elder God. Their song War, from their album, Twilight Theater, also made an appearance in the game. Their latest project with the developers has been with Alan Wake's American Nightmare. Balance Slays the Demon was created specifically for the title, and The Happy Song (which also appeared in the album Temple of Thought) also appeared in the game. The song Labyrinth from their Clearview album was inspired by Quantum Break.

After seven years, the band once again join forces with the studio to create something special for Control; their song My Dark Disquiet from the album Ultraviolet appeared in the game, as did a commissioned song entitled Take Control.
