Video: Schaus – Slush

“Slush In the midst of a demagogue, these lyrics reduce the trappings of academia to a slush. The ouroboros of theory and reality play out with history repeating itself as the statues cascade behind one another. The imagery morphs as the synths undulate and progress through a revelation in the track’s final act as the viewer is consumed by the snake. Slush is just the beginning of the journey of Handshake.”Schaus
