VIDEO// The Aprons: Sound Stain

There is something unnerving about The Aprons' music video for 'Sound Stain'. It has all the qualities of a long-forgotten fairytale, the bass guitar's hypnotic rhythm recalled as though from a dream. The scene is surreal, each shadow a ripple of discontent and each solemn breath of wind the tinkling of hidden crystal wings. A ritualistic drum beat flutters, and the unearthly vocals drip in unworldly reverb. All is calm, and whether it's a comment on our own delicate mortality or on the fragility of the female form, this track is an undeniably beautiful one.
