Featureless Ghost release “Video Enforcement”, the first video from The Skyhaven Network Sessions was released today. I featured the track on last weeks Aural Delights.
Cut from footage recorded at the band’s Atlanta studio headquarters, this two-part video series sees Elise Tippins and Matt Weiner provide a visual setting for their contemporary take on industrial and dark wave, with live audio-visual performances of “Video Enforcement” and “Flash” the latter of which I guess will follow soon.
With Elise providing visual direction under her “Fantastic Lands” alias, the videos fuse her distorted-neon, CRT graphics with the bands’ distant, effect-laden vocals, icey synths and robotic drums. The result is like a hazy VHS transmission from a cold, alternate reality and an evocative live experience.
To celebrate the release, Featureless Ghost are giving away the album version of “Video Enforcement” (taken from their Personality Matrix LP, released last year on Night People) and a remix by Cape Town duo, Tannhäuser Gate for free download.
