Watch “Memory” A Short Film in Collaboration with Kevan Funk

We collaborated with director Kevan Funk on a short film for the song “Memory”. Enjoy.

Listen to “Memory” featuring Dan Boeckner

“Memory” was the second song that we started working on for Preoccupations after “Anxiety”. It was unique to the sessions of the record in that we worked on it in every studio that we were in. The idea we had for it’s arc made it necessary to put more work into it than any of the other tracks. The finished result was worked on in 6 different studios over almost two years. Getting Dan in to record the vocals was the final piece of the puzzle and was Matt’s idea. We were tracking in Montreal and cold-called him to see if he wanted to sing a duet of sorts, but his vocal was so perfect for it that we didn’t use Matts for most of it

Watch The New Video for “Degraded”

Below is the video for our single “Degraded” directed by Valentina Tapia.  In her own words:

“This video offers an encounter with the primordial ruins of a post-human landscape, where sentient sculptural artifacts attempt to reassemble themselves piece by piece. Unidentified abstracted organisms carry on and thrive in a terrain that’s begun to settle back into itself, as rendered in scenes of mixed digital and painted 2D and 3D animation”
