Color War’s Justin “Billy J” Lin and Lindsay Mound originally met in 2004, when they were both working as visual artists. In 2009, the Brooklyn-based duo began collaborating on music, assuming their name and honing their dark electronics. Now, Color War are gearing up to unveil their debut album, It Could Only Be This Way, due March 4 via Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. With that preparation comes the official video for the album’s second single, “SOS” (lead track “Obelisk” surfaced last summer). Directed by Lin and Mound’s friend Julia Ngeow, the clip is rich in ceremony and color, telling the story of a royal who’s beset upon by evil forces. Watch the drama unfold above.
