Seattle-based experimental psych architects MIDDAY VEIL have released a new video for Remember Child, a ceremonial slow-burner from their upcoming album The Current. Produced and edited by band members David Golightly and Emily Pothast, the video employs processed footage of celestial collisions to accompany its cosmic chants.

Emerging from the slippery, mythical darkness of the Pacific Northwest. MIDDAY VEIL combines haunting vocals and cosmic synth work with driving, hypnotic rock grooves to produce music that rewards careful listening and defies easy categorisation.
Produced by Seattle luminary Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Master Musicians of Bukkake) and featuring original artwork by Robert Beatty, MIDDAY VEIL‘s follow-up studio LP The Current harnesses the experimental intensity of the band’s acclaimed improvised releases with a return to the arena of songcraft. Opening with the krautrock-esque exuberance of the title track, the album quickly takes a turn for the modal, moving through the freakish drone-rock of ‘Choreia,’ the uncanny, disembodied chant of ‘Remember Child,’ the languid, orchestral dream of ‘Without and Within’ and the cold, inorganic underworld of ‘Sun Stone’ before arriving at the album’s dark climax: the 11-minute psych-glam-metal opus ‘Great Cold of the Night.
The Current is out on Translinguistic Other on September 9th.
