Lunacy releases video for Sediment
By: Olivia McAuley
Lunacy, an experimental post-punk artist from Philadelphia has just released ‘Sediment’ in conjunction with a symbiotically dysphoric music video. Sediment comes as the last track in a series of EP releases and Singles from 2016 – 2018 that make up the forthcoming “Just The Beginning” compilation LP (Out in October). The nerve bending soundscapes created by the electronically driven Lunacy is perfectly rendered to visual by the artist, Neu Caligula. Like the Rorschach shapes and visuals of the music video; that hint at anatomical depictions and ‘the grotesque’ without quite pushing you over the edge, the music itself walks a constant line of dissonance.
The reverberated cult-like chants hover over distorted notes in a somehow more-ish and soothing way, though still creating a suspense as if it might all come crashing down at any moment. While the namesake might suggest a conspicuous intention at pushing the boundaries of experimental vs pure noise, there is a delightful reason and musical comprehension to be found within the wondering walls of sound. Epic reverberated tones act as a peninsula to the crashing waves of crunchy distorted pulses of noise, the echoing voices becoming as comforting as a melody. As the artist sits on the precipice of their upcoming release, P.A and N.Y can look forward to a run of upcoming shows in anticipation. Alternatively, if you can’t make it to Philly or it’s surrounding areas in time – buy the track or stream it now on Bandcamp.
