black midi Unveil Video for New Song ‘Slow’, Announce Tour

    black midi have shared a new song called ‘Slow’. It’s the latest offering from the band’s upcoming album Cavalcade and one of two songs on the LP sung by bassist Cameron Picton. Check it out below, alongside an animated video by Gustaf Holtenäs.

    “The ‘Slow’ video was made to fit the oscillating dynamics of the song. Going from calm to chaos over and over again,” Holtenäs said of the concept behind the video. “The video tells the story of a character who creates AI-generated worlds. To emphasize this, I let real AI’s generate a lot of the backgrounds in these worlds. So they are partly AI-generated, but It isn’t long before an AI could create the whole deal and create endless iterations of fantasy worlds. It can already create a random beautiful landscape painting in 1 second.”

    Cavalcade is set for release on May 28 via Rough Trade. Previously, black midi shared the lead single ‘John L’. The band have also announced a fall 2021 U.S. tour – find the dates below.
