The Ancients Celebrate Good Old Fashioned Freedom in the Premiere of 'Molokai'

In their new video for ‘Molokai’ the band employ bikers and brown-belts

In their new video for “Molokai”, the Ancients, Jon Michell, and friend Monica Vecchiotti pay tribute to American freedom and royalty-free stock footage.

The six-minute sweeping guitar symphony is taken from the Melbourne psych-poppers 2013 album Night Bus and the video features bikers, open highways, babes on horses, and that great symbol of American freedom—the single dad.

Michell of course played in a band with one of the greatest names ever - Mum Smokes - so you’d expect his sense of humour to fall more towards the wry.

Guitar solos, disheveled pop and HD footage of a guy riding a powered paraglider- welcome to the world of the Ancients.

Celebrate freedom with the Ancients, the Twerps, and Krakatau at Boney in Melbourne on May 16.
