Porcelain Raft Has a New Video for “Put Me To Sleep,” Featuring A Lot of Milk

I think milk is completely disgusting. Yogurt is awesome and I can safely say a bulk of my grocery budget in the last month has gone to cheese, but I can’t do milk…unless it’s being used as a prop in a music video! Porcelain Raft’s Mauro Remiddi made this creepily awesome video for the band’s song “Put Me To Sleep,” in which he fidgets, rolls around and sings in a bathtub of milk.

How’d he get his inspiration? “Once a dear friend of mine said ‘imagine if instead of water it would rain milk.’” says Remiddi. “That sentence got stuck in my head. It’s about texture, the way milk would spread through the tiny paths of the pavement, touching the trees first, then our heads, then the ground.” On top of that, Remiddi employed some very nifty editing, leaving us with a ghostly, milky visual accompaniment to a song the remains equally haunting.

Porcelain Raft also has a bunch of new tour dates, including a couple runs with M83 and Smith Westerns. Check them out live and stay tuned for the full-length album, Strange Weekend, which will be dropping January 24 (January 23 in Europe)!
