Others – “Geist”

An incredible, unsettling video from Solomon Burbridge and Joshua Cox accompanies an edit from Others’s debut Geist. The record fuses modern composition with close-proximity anxiety waves. The video plays on these well, turning the group’s buzzing drone, foreboding tones, and plucked strings into a bed for dissociative themes and antiseptic social settings. Where the video is awash in color the music drains away hues – a pallid and queasy bedrock for frustration and disquieting moments. The band is the concoction of Lesli Wood of Cobra Family Picnic and Daniel Martin Diaz of Trees Speak. The squeamish plucks come courtesy of violinist Vicki Brown, nailing the tension that runs through the album. The record is out on 11/22 from Cindedelic Records.
