Danish five-piece Tales of Murder and Dust has produced a bleak but beautifully evocative new single “Black Reflections” and its suitably abstract video.
“Black Reflections” signals a departure from the group’s psych-surf roots, ahead of their upcoming second album, The Flow In Between, out 23rd March. Their most expansive release to date, it embraces opiate blues, drone rock, orchestral swathes and New York no-wave experimentalism, which the track represents beautifully.
The video evokes the album’s crimson toned cover art, and occupies a typically DIY psych style involving found footage, collage, and translucent overlays to create something atmospheric and emotionally charged against the dramatic track it carries.
“Black Reflections” is full of dark and melodic beauty, and climactic intensity, that recalls artists like Swans, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Besnard Lakes and The Catherine Wheel.
