Caligula's Horse, one of Australia's most exciting andinnovative progressive bands, have released a visually stunning and reflectivevideo for "Turntail"which comes from their internationally criticallyacclaimed third album Bloom, releasedglobally via InsideOutMusic in October2015. Watch the video now here:

Filmed at GC Studios on the Gold Coast, Caligula'sHorse further collaborated with one of Australia's most promising video clipfilmmakers in Adrian Goleby, who also worked on the band's videos for "A GiftTo Afterthought" and "Firelight". The aimwas to create a video that wasuplifting, but also one that conveyed a strong political message.

In "Turntail", a dancer is brightly colored buttrapped in darkness by an external force, and her own fear. She grasps herrestraints, fighting against them, and learns to control and harness that fear.The color gradually returns to her as shestands against the outside force,free and powerful.

Turntail has a message of rebellion, of fightingfor freedom, of standing your ground against an oppressor. In Australia, we areengaging in an act of utter cowardice by our treatment of refugees. This is asong of courage, and the most courageousact in a time like this is compassion.

Caligula's Horse Frontman, Jim Grey Says Of The Video:

"Turntail is exactlywhat Caligula's Horse is about - It's powerful, energetic, melodic andforthright - this is a song about taking a stand, about fighting for freedom inwhatever way you can. Considering the atrocious political climate in Australiaand worldwide, I don't think we could be releasing this single at a moreappropriate time."
