AU has taken the music scene by storm this year, releasing their highly anticipated third album, Both Lights, and completing a U.S. and European tour with bands like Deerhoof, WHY?, and The Dodos. Phew!
A new video for their song, “Solid Gold,” has been recently released, and it’s a highly energetic video at that. At the start, though, it’s quite somber and calm. A choral vocal takes the lead while a piano lends complements. Soon thereafter, the wave breaks. Beautiful chaos ensues. Imagine you were in a psychotic whirlwind of all things psychedelic and wild. This uninhabited approach is one that requires much attention to detail and imagination. AU’s got that covered.
This orchestral symphony of psychedelia lends to an electrically charged song and aesthetically pleasing video. Strap yourself in and head on over to AU’s bandcamp to hear Both Lights in full.
