Electronic duo Plaid has approached their 11th album ‘Feorm Falorx’ by recreating a specific gig that Plaid created. The gig was an intergalactic one, taking place at the Feorm Festival on a planet called Falorx. In order to play on the planet, humans have to transform into light beings. The music made was gentle, ethereal wisps of beauty mixed in with cascades of kaleidoscopic movements of sound. Having been around now for 30 years, Plaid has been a cornerstone of electronic music and this new album looks to take them into the galaxy and beyond.
‘Perspex’ is their lead single for this project. The jangly, prepared piano synth going haywire builds from abstract sound to a waterfall of beautiful glistening trinkets. It sounds like how I’d imagine a meteorite shower burning up would sound like. A celestial event from far away; lights twinkling masking the final moments. Accompanying the single is a stunning music video. Video director Emma Catnip explains “’Perspex’ is a short film inspired by the idea of Light Beings created on Feorm Falorx. I took the themes of transparency and sentience and imagined a new consciousness awakening through these constantly evolving sculptures.” The video was created with AI translating words into sculptured images.
Enjoy the hypnotic and slightly eerie music video for ‘Perspex’ below. The single is out now. ‘Feorm Falorx’ is due for release on the 11th of November and is available to pre-order. For more information on all things Plaid follow them on Facebook.
