Just last month, NYC duo Blondes graced us with a stream of its new album, Swisher, and they now have a syrupy, lo-fi new video for “Elise”, the record’s closing cut. The seven-minute clip finds director Greg Zifcak (who has also been responsible for past Blondes visuals) pairing swimming geometric shapes in a wash of hazy atmospheric colors and patterns. It’s as mesmerizing as the accompanying track, and makes a great metaphor for the band, as Blondes has always been content to find ways of marrying futuristic forms with its own analog-driven infatuation. Though it’s currently available as a digital download, Swisher will be released on double-LP and CD via RVNG on August 6, and the band will celebrate with a record release show in Brooklyn on July 20 at 285 Kent.
