After announcing their new Hall of Human Origins EP (out on September 24 via Styles Upon Styles), the instrumental wizards of Brooklyn’s Archie Pelago have released a video for their upcoming record’s opening track, “Chronomancer”. Pairing silky jazz instrumentation with contemporary bass music, the cut hits all the right pleasure centers while managing to avoid any sonic pretension or excessive layering. “Chronomancer”‘s accompanying video is a synesthetic take on the song, with each sound broken into a waveform or kaleidoscopic pattern, images which are interspersed with live-action scenes of a mysterious, masked birdman.
