A kaleidoscopic fever dream in Cloudeater’s “Smog” video

Cloudeater: SmogCloudeater: Smog digital single (5/6/13)

Atmospheric and bass-heavy as always, Atlanta’s Cloudeater has a video for new standalone single “Smog,” and it shows off the band’s slower side. The track, full of skittering snares and hollow bass, crawls along like a funeral dirge. The video itself is a kaleidoscopic fever dream set to blurred visions of woodlands, geometric patterns, and intense close-ups. In a word: unsettling.

“Smog” is the last of a series of standalone singles released by the band in advance of a new, Prefuse 73-mixed album that’s due out later this summer. Enjoy.
