Yesterday, the world was treated to its first new Boards of Canada song in eight years, the quietly brooding “Reach for the Dead,” which probably would’ve been more than enough to old fans over until the duo’s long-awaited Tomorrow’s Harvest LP drops on June 10. But now, Warp has ever so cryptically shared a reversed version of that track’s music video for us to pour over. There’s not much else to say about the video that its title doesn’t already explain: colorful footage is paired with the Scottish brothers’ dreamily barren soundscapes, and it’s all ran backwards. We’re not sure if it “means” anything, but it’s satisfying all the same how natural Boards of Canada sounds in reverse. The piece can be seen below.
