With the excitement surrounding the release of their upcoming album Sincerely, Future Pollution, which will be available Friday, April 7th via Arts & Crafts, Timber Timbre have released a video for their song “Grifting.”
German illustrator and animator Elenor Kopka directed, animated, and produced the tarot-inspired video.
“We were fortunate to be able to work with Elenor again,” says frontman Taylor Kirk in a release. “I can’t say that it was a collaboration exactly because with Elenor we grant total artistic freedom and have faith that her vision and alchemical practice will not only serve the song but elevate it to another plane altogether. I don’t think I can even sing the song now without conjuring these images.”
Traveling to La Frette chateau just outside Paris, the band looked to “archetypal synthesizers” to create their new album. Sincerely, Future Pollution is “a romance of neoteric machines and dark, futuristic hues: with promise as beautiful as it is unsettling.”
The trio from Montreal will also be embarking on their 2017 UK and Europe tour today, April 6th, while their North American tour will begin on April 28th, stopping by Toronto on June 4th.
