“Under The Tallest Arch” follows up its predecessor “Glass”, which we ranked #4 in our Best Music Videos of 2018, but this time shifts focus from the club to the closer confines of a motion capture studio. Live interactive projections are beamed onto the walls and bodies of the dancers in a strobe light fashion – giving it an ethereal sense of motion.
“Three characters together with three styles of choreographed movement evolve through the video, representing a state of mind progression from these archived moments. This fresh cut introduces a collection that affords time dwelling outside of the margins of where club and home listening music intersect, perhaps further blurring the boundaries. Waves of spectral noise roll with energy, while pristine breakbeats intersect with introspective, subtle acid lines. Once more, close your eyes, press repeat.”
‘Song For Alpha: B-sides & Remixes’ is scheduled for release 5 April, order a copy here.
