WATCH // Tomas Barfod Premieres New “Pulsing” Video, EP Out February 18th

Today we share Tomas Barfod‘s first music video for the track “Pulsing”. Directed by Cherise Payne (dir. videos for Sampha, Apache Beat), the video shows the intersection of teenage love and the local meat market over Barfod’s constantly building track featuring the vocals of collaborator Nina K.

On the video, director Cherise Payne says:

The first thing that struck me about Tomas’ track was that the melody and vocal were so beautiful but there was an underlying darkness in the bass and the beat. I wanted to explore this idea of beauty and darkness in the video by presenting a series of contrasts. The blood and gore of a meat market is contrasted with the passion and skill a butcher lends to their work, much like an artist working on a sculpture. The haze of a young couple exploring the city after a night out is contrasted with the the focus and bustle of a busy early morning market

WATCH // Porcelain Raft Premieres First Single “Think Of The Ocean” With Video, Reveals Album Cover And Tracklist

Porcelain Raft premiered the song “Think Of The Ocean” today, from the upcoming Permanent Signal release, with visuals also by Mauro Remiddi (recording under the PR moninker since 2010). Permanent Signal is a phrase that symbolizes a phone line that is without a connection for a long period of time, a state Remiddi related to while being on tour, away from friends and family. Recorded at the end of 2012, Permanent Signal found Remiddi selling the instruments he used to record his full-length debut, Strange Weekend, in order to “start with a new color palette.” Using new tools and sounds, Remiddi also enlisted the help of Jonny Rogoff (Yuck) on drums, Darby Cicci (Antlers) on bass and Gaspar Claus (collaborator of Sufjan Stevens and The National) on cello.

Watch the visual for “Think Of The Ocean” above and check the tracklist and album cover below for Permanent Signal out August 20th on Secretly Canadian.
