Seattle cosmic couriers Midday Veil have uploaded a new video of “Remember Child,” a track from their second album, the Randall Dunn-produced The Current, one of the most compelling releases from this area this year.
“Remember Child” sounds as fraught with spectacular peril as some of the deepest, dopest passage of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The beautiful catastrophic planetary footage in the clip—assembled, processed, and edited by MV vocalist Emily Pothast and keyboardist David Golightly—is the perfect visual analogue to the music. The ominous drones form a momentous foundation over which Pothast solemnly intones:
You are a universe within yourself/The sun and moon and stars above/All have their parallels/Inside each microcosmic vessel/Of your human cells/You are the alpha, the omega/Heaven and hell
