Ever wonder what it would be like to drop 'shrooms and do cardio in the middle of a baseball field? Well, it seems as though Porcelain Raft's mastermind Mauro Remiddi has wondered the same thing--and luckily, for the less adventurous of us who have not yet tripped out in a field, the visual stream for solo artist's new song allows us to get weird in the comfort of our own home (or from wherever you might choose to enjoy this video).
In Porcelain Raft's new visual stream for his new song, "The Way Out"--a clever nod to his earlier single, "The Way In" (which also features an odd video)--listeners are treated to some great experimental soundscapes that are as refreshing as they are familiar and memorable. Remiddi's soothing-yet-powerful vocals are paired with a driving rhythm and some ambient guitar melodies to create a track that is definitely worth listening to over and over again.
However, if experimental dream-pop isn't quite your thing, you might still want to watch this video if only to figure out what the hell it's all about. He's just jumping in a baseball field. Is there even anything to understand? Are we reading too much into this?...Probably.
"The Way Out" is featured on Porcelain Raft's upcoming album, Permanent Signal, which will be released on August 20 through Secretly Canadian.
