Consider the Source has released a new music video for “It Is Known”, off of the band’s 2019 album You Are Literally A Metaphor.

The nearly-12-minute video is a bit of an experimental journey that centers around the universal theme of finding relief from despair. During the more avant-garde moments that are increasingly eye-catching, the music takes on an ambient, ethereal tone. As the music starts to get more intense, however, the camera cuts to the band playing in some sort of enchanted forest, where they become the focus as things get heavy and sporadic, until eventually rolling back the tension to return to the story.

The music video eventually reveals itself as the story of a man being released from pain and suffering through the love of a good dog. All the while, Consider the Course is doing their trademark sci-fi Middle Eastern fusion, and it makes one wonder why Consider the Source doesn’t do movie soundtracks for independent cinema.

“‘It is known’ is one of the most emotionally charged songs on the album,” CTS bassist John Ferrara mentioned in a statement. “The song was inspired by impermanence and acceptance, that we all suffer through loss but in that there’s the potential for a more open heart. Kelly McDermott drew up the storyboard, created all the costumes, acted in it and directed it, creating a visually stunning narrative that completely conveys the underlying tone of the song.”
