Bedroom pop composer Mauro Remiddi (aka Porcelain Raft) has unveiled the music video for “Something In Between”, the B-side to the forthcoming single “Unless You Speak From Your Heart”. Sonically, it’s another lush, flowing cut of melodic guitars and hazy vocals that melts into a cascade of crashing snares and lighter-than-air vocals. At first glance, the accompanying visuals are merely a random compilation of some billboards and other urban imagery, but as Remiddi explained on his YouTube page, it’s an exploration of the connections we don’t always notice right away.
“A few months ago I filmed the billboard you see at the beginning of the video. I forgot about those images I took until a week ago, while driving back after filming the video for ‘Unless You Speak From You Heart’, we saw the same exact billboard collapsed on the BQE, very close to where I live. That structure consisted of two different billboards that don’t face each other but are connected somehow. ‘Something In Between’ feels like the right title for that.”
Porcelain Raft’s debut LP, Strange Weekend, is out now via Secretly Canadian. The single “Unless You Speak From Your Heart” b/w “Something In Between” will hit stores on February 21st.
