The Beths Share Video for “Mars, The God Of War,” Announce Livestream

Earlier this summer, The Beths released their second album Jump Rope Gazers via Carpark Records. Today, the New Zealand-based group shared their video for “Mars, The God of War,” directed by Callum Devlin and Annabel Kean of Sports Team.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes says of the video: “The video has a really silly energy that everyone really embraced. With NZ being COVID-free, there’s a real palpable joy and euphoria in being able to get together and make something. We feel very lucky and Sports Team smashed it out of the park once again.”

Devlin and Kean added:

As well as being genius musicians, in our minds The Beths are defined by being a committed, intelligent and extremely efficient team, and have turned the collaborative inner workings of an indie rock band into an art in itself. We wanted to explore that side of the band in the ultimate team-up genre; a high stakes twist laden heist movie. Obviously. Also, we seem to find the idea of The Beths entering into a life of crime frankly hilarious. We love working with The Beths. No band is more committed to exhausting every possible gag out of a situation. We initially plotted out the entire film, but decided to abandon it in favour of making as gag-dense a video as possible, if that makes sense.

The Beths also announced a livestream performance from Auckland Town Hall on Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. ET via Bandcamp. You can purchase tickets here.
