Amnesia Scanner’s new music video puts you inside a bowl of psychedelic noodles

Experience what it's like to be ramen to aggressive electronica sludge.

The aggressive electronic noise and chaos of Amnesia Scanner is gearing up for their third studio album. Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala, the duo behind Amnesia Scanner won’t be alone though as the entire album is a collaboration with rapper Freeka Tet. The album is called ‘STROBE.RIP’ and is a reverse hero’s journey, taking you back down into chaos and artistic weirdness. Across the album, we’ll experience hyper realised beats, grizzly vocal snippets and harsh bass and synth lines. There is always a sludgy grunge to Amnesia Scanner’s dark electronic sound and that always draws me in. It sounds like this has evolved into what they call a ‘deep fried baroque… psychotic mixtape’. I can’t top that!

New single ‘Ledge’ is a short two-minute piece that spells out the mood of the album. It also comes with a typically offputting and strange music video. A warped panoramic camera is placed inside a bowl of noodles which are being eaten and so we go watch as noodles fly up towards the highest peak in the centre of the screen, and occasionally we go up to be slurped too. It is a wild ride and gets me excited for the new album.

Enjoy ‘Ledge’ below, it is out now. To pre-order ‘STROBE.RIP’, visit Bandcamp. The album releases on the 16th of June.
