We’re thrilled to share with you Dirty Inputs‘ eerie, menacing and beautifully-shot video for “Less Talk More Magic.” Directed by Henry Sansom and designed by Silent Shout’s own Roxanne Ignatius, the video features the Toronto ambient-drone maestro driving around the city while everything around him morphs into some subtle pixelating effects. It’s very cool and off-putting. Zoo Owl makes a quick cameo in full costume, as do Most People, who play a band of misfit partiers who seem bent on ruining the driver’s night.
The song is equally as menacing with a throbbing bass-line that feels right at home during the neon-tinted nighttime driving session. Producer Aaron Dawson then builds the music off a serene guitar line into a breath-taking crescendo when the drums kick in around the 3:30 minute mark. Add synth string swells and more atmosphere and you’ve get real ominous moods on you hands.
“Less Talk More Magic” is the first single of The Runcible, Dirty Inputs’ next record, out now on Toronto label Paper+Sound. Join them at Array Space July 7 for their record release show with Cares and Memorex presented by Invocation.
