The Ophelias have shared a brand new tune, ‘The Twilight Zone’, lifted from their upcoming album Crocus. The monitor arrives with an accompanying video, which you’ll take a look at beneath.
Vocalist/guitarist Spencer Peppet stated of the brand new single and video in a press release:
‘The Twilight Zone’ was a tune that grew in-studio. We recorded the essential tracks and I had an thought for an enormous outro. I knew I wished horns on one tune on this album, since I had been listening to and impressed by The Verlaines and Jay Som. I wrote the horn and extra strings components at dwelling, then introduced them in and requested Peter Boylan (horns), Kate Wakefield (cello), Nina Payiatis (violin), and Anissa Pulcheon (viola) to play. It grew from there too – Coltan Foster added bassoon, which John and I had been so enthusiastic about that we copied considered one of their later components and pasted it into the intro. Andrea added the excessive, cinematic violins (and the midi boys choir, which sounds foolish in idea however added the proper texture!) and it was all of a sudden big. It’s at all times just a little unusual to listen to my phrases backed by a band, however this was further surreal because it grew and grew. Lyrically, this tune spans a very long time. It’s been a pair years since I wrote it and issues have modified much more since then.
We made the visualizer with our good friend Andrew Skalak, utilizing a method they utilized in particular results earlier than computer systems known as a “cloud tank.” Every little thing on this video is finished virtually (that means in-camera, in actual life), nothing computer-generated. Andrew projected video of us by an aquarium and onto rippling material, which gave the pictures a refracted, unearthly feeling.
The Ophelias’ Crocus comes out September 24 by way of Joyful Noise. The band has already shared the album singles ‘Vapor’, ‘Sacrificial Lamb’, and the Julien Baker-featuring ‘Neil Younger On Excessive’.
