SLIFT have released a video for their new single ‘Weavers’ Weft’, which is lifted from their forthcoming LP ILION. It arrives on the heels of previous singles ‘Ilion’ and ‘Nimh’. Check it out via the accompanying visual below.
“‘Weavers’ Weft’ is the song that opens the album’s second half,” the band shared in a statement. “There was a tipping point in the narrative at the end of the first half of the album. The second half of the record is no longer situated in the linear flow of time that serves as a backdrop for many stories. From ‘Weavers’ Weft’ onwards, time goes both into the past and into the future. The piece talks about weavers of the fabric of time, entities who continually create space-times, each containing its share of universes. Everything that exists is written there, and it is possible to travel between frames. Everything is cyclical and infinite. To illustrate this (or maybe it’s the other way around?), we wanted something monolithic and timeless. It is as if this song has been sung for millennia (time goes back to the past!). The heavier parts are inspired by bands like Part Chimp and Gnod.”
ILION, the French psychedelic rock outfit’s Sub Pop debut, is due out January 19.
