A colourful, trippy set of visuals that compliment the cacophony of sounds they accompany, Leeds-based trio Magick Mountain have shared a video for their latest single ‘Infinity X2’. Lifted from their debut album Weird Feelings, which is set for release on 23rd October, the track is “a psychedelic punk love song” filled with fuzzed up riffs and frenzied percussion.
Formed of Lins Wilson (Grammatics & Mother Vulpine), Tom Hudson (Pulled Apart By Horses) and Nestor Matthews (Sky Larkin, Menace Beach), Magick Mountain craft energetic, psych-infused, frantic guitar tunes that explore everything from fantastical worlds to ancient mythology and mystical metaphors. On ‘Infinity X2′ the band hurtle into the idea of two lovers’ worlds colliding and merging into one.
The accompanying video is a collaboration between the band and analogue “VFX wizard” Josh Brownrigg. Of the footage, Wilson explains: “It was self-filmed in our practise space, which involved metres of gaffa-hung green fabric, make-shift tripods, a last minute lighting ‘rig’ and a state of the art spinning cam courtesy of a 1980s record player and phone holder. After Magick Mountain bassist/artman Tom Hudson edited the footage, we handed over the reins to Josh to work his glitchy visual sorcery, using analogue video synthesisers to experiment with tripped-out trails and create the mega fuzzed-up aesthetic. With its blues, deep purples, corals and pinks complimenting Tom’s cover artwork for the single, the video becomes part of the overall visual and sonic onslaught brought to you by Magick Mountain.”
