Italy’s progressive post-rockers THE WHIRLINGS unveil mystical new video « Vacuum » off their recent album ‘Earthshine’, available via Subsound Records. Get into its magic now, exclusively over at Everything Is Noise.
The exception that proves the rules, « Vaccum » features vocalist Vera Claps. The 90s-infused alt-rock side of the usually instrumental combo is beautifully highlighted by a natural scenography and bewitching characters. The video was realized by Diego La Chioma, with Luisa Vivio, production Hey Doc Video.
« All the instruments sit together in the mix beautifully, the reverb is 60s nostalgia perfection, and there’s enough fuzz and snappy snare tones infused into the auditory potion to give it a modern, urgent rock n’roll edge. Meanwhile, Vera Claps’s melodies give the track a slightly spooky arcane hook, while never dominating the music » describe Everything Is Noise.
THE WHIRLINGS new album ‘Earthshine’ delivers beyond their trademark heavy psych and post-rock sound, offering a rich blend of sonic languages shaped through endless jams. Its force lays in intense and elegant buildups, involving the listener in silky stargazing that progressively shifts to telluric, fuzz-laden soundscapes. Embark on this staunch, sidereal capsule, you will return changed. ‘Earthshine’ was recorded and mixed by Lorenzo Stecconi (Zu, Ufomammut, Lento) at LRS Factory Roma, and mastered by Luigi Di Filippo at LRS Factory Roma.
« The waiting is finally over. Here’s to you the third chapter of our psychedelic trip. ‘Earthshine’ is an unpredictable and fluid magma. We invite you to join us, out of your comfort zone. Let yourself flow toward unknown horizons » comment the band.
