Ahead of the release of their new LP Spike Field this Friday, Maria BC has unveiled one more single, ‘Lacuna’. It follows previous offerings ‘Amber’, ‘Watcher’, and ‘Still’. Check out director Sam Kann’s video for it below.
“I struggle with words, generally speaking,” Maria BC said in a statement about the new track. “Lyrics are tough for me. I’ll often start working on a piece of music thinking it’s going to be instrumental, but then, I don’t know, it ends up feeling incomplete, so I give it some words to flesh it out. This instrumental, though, ended up sounding self-contained to me, or like even the most interesting lyrics would diminish it. The gated vocals, the cryptic textural sounds – it all evokes a kind of preverbal state. Hence the title.”
Kann added of the visual: “I’m so drawn to the eerie nostalgia in the music. It was a joy to break out my old mini DV tape camcorder to create unsettling, dreamy images for Lacuna. Collaborating with [Maria BC] is soul expanding—I’m grateful to be exploring the definition of connection alongside them.”
Spike Field is the follow-up to last year’s Hyaline. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Maria BC.
