Violens - “It Couldn’t Be Perceived”

Here’s a mesmerizing new video for Violens’ track “Acid Reign (In the Trees Mix)”. It was directed by Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, who you may remember already collaborated w/ Violens member Jorge Elbrecht for that incredible Bieber headtrip under the SGINNED psuedonym. Love the unwavering closeup, the bleached out colors and ghost trails. And that dangly earring, so very George Michael. Can’t go wrong there.

"Acid Reign" was the third entry in my Essential LSTN Series. But the song’s mix in this video, I actually prefer quite a bit. Those guitar licks are so damn sexy. The “In the Trees Mix” can be found on Violens’ new split-7” with Twin Shadow.

Don’t know how I missed when this up. I was keeping an ear out for it for quite awhile and nothing ever went up. Then I don’t get any e-mails or Twitter updates from them for awhile, I randomly poke my head in on their website again this morning, and there it is!
