Timber Timbre today debuted a new video for ‘Velvet Gloves & Spit’, the second song released off the Canadian trio’s forthcoming fourth album Sincerely, Future Pollution.
Sincerely, Future Pollution, due out in April via label City Slang, sees Kirk, Mathieu Charbonneau, and Simon Trottier introduce ‘secret weapon’ Olivier Fairfield on drums to lead you down the meandering path of sensuality, ethereal mystery as your mind wanders to a bucolic place.
The video features and was created by artist and poet Cristine Brache, who said: “We wanted the video to have a homemade feel, lo-fi, to make the situation feel more intimate. With the first cut, I tried to let the video weave in and out of the song.”
“The repetition emphasises the earnest desire to be disciplined, which I think compliments the song,” Brache added.
“As it is a music video, I don’t think it should be grounded in narrative because I don’t think the song needs it. The song stands on its own.
“Any attempt to try to overshadow that would weaken the video. I think the music video’s job is to provide opportunities for the viewer to see non-linear gestures and moments and to give the song space. A good song needs a lot of space.”
Sincerely, Future Pollution is Timber Timbre’s document of this generation’s degeneration and disarray. With Kirk as narrator, a party to the play, we get caught in the folly of the echo chamber, awed by the contrast of this gothic modern age.
Timber Timbre are hitting the road on a major American and European tour with a stop off at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on April 18th.
