Ancient Mith has a brand new video out called “Melungeon”!
“Melungeon is a term to describe a group of typically dark skinned light-eyed people in the Appalachian Mountains whose ancestry is unknown. At times used in a derogatory manner. A story of a people that society set aside, only to eventually become indistinguishable from. This and the idea, that most people want to be different or unique, yet when someone is, the crowd tends to point and not accept it, are the basis for the song. Summed up in the line, “Ain’t nothing changed, nobody wants to be plain, but we laugh at the strange when they’re all alone.” Confetti Noir assists with the visuals, filmed in South France. Tabatha represents the innocence of being yourself, how certain elements such as skin color, or appearance can not be changed or masked for others to judge and the resolve and strength it takes to face these challenges everyday. “Melungeon” is the second video from Ancient Mith’s “And The Dead Shall Lie There”.”
