MTS' Finnish Singer-Songwriter Mauri Dark and his two-year-old daughter explore a burnt forest in his new post-apocalyptic music video “Love Will Prevail.”
Shot in Muhos, Finland, with cinematographer Vesa Ranta, the footage for “Love Will Prevail” was intended as a side story to “Dreams Of a Middle Aged Man.” The video will be released on March 31, 2021.
Mauri Dark says, “The ‘Love Will Prevail’ music video is a dreamy journey through an apocalyptic, burnt forest, together with my two-year-old daughter. There is no purer form of love than the love towards your own child. My daughter, Hymni, is the star and director of the show. I love her more than anyone else. Dressed in white and with a white balloon tied to her back, she guided us through each take with her innocent, playful, intuition. This video is a wonderful memory for both of us. Editing it was a heartfelt experience. Just watching her being her beautiful, pure, self, unable to fake or act. If we could only maintain a tiny part of the pure love and joy a child has simply being alive this world would be a wonderful place. Love Will Prevail!”
“Dreams Of A Middle-Aged Man,” the album, was written, produced, recorded and performed by Mauri Dark. The sound was crafted with Mixing Engineer / Associate Producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Apocalyptica), Two-time Grammy Winning Mastering Engineer Vlado Meller (Metallica, Johnny Cash) and Associate Producer Jussi Vuola.
