Vancouver’s SLIP~ons has announced the release of their debut album, an EP entitled Heavy Machinery, due out June 30th. To add to the announcement of their much anticipated album, the band has also released a new single and accompanying music video for the title track.
The black and white video was shot by Ryan C. Clark and both directed and edited by the R.D. Cane. It consists of layers of short montages of the band in rehearsal with heady, swirling edits that play with time and space. The visual style of the video allows the deep rhythm of the track to shine through while highlighting the enigmatic live performances of the band.
Reflecting on the video shoot, bandmember Brock says:
“I’ve always been a bit iffy on music videos, so we just borrowed some grip gear and lamps from my film buddies and created a bit of a playground in our rehearsal space for RD to do his thing. Jam Space Confidential was the theme. RD was really working up a sweat directing traffic, and I love that you can see the crew moving around with us moving ladders and waving light wands.”
