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.
