Porcelain Raft - 'Permanent Signal' (new album / video)

by Jane Jansen Seymour

27 June 2013

Mauro Remiddi of Porcelain Raft has released a new song, "Think of the Ocean", ahead of a new album called Permanent Signal (out August 20 via Secretly Canadian). The title refers to a phone line that loses its connection for a long time -- the feeling Remiddi while on tour away from family and friends.
 

“Think of the Ocean” is the opening track for the album, a spare song of pulsating beats and Remiddi’s own intertwining vocals.  The video is a wavering shot as we look over a woman’s shoulder as she looks at a black slate, simple yet striking visuals that allows the focus to be on the music.  After 2012’s Strange Weekend, Remiddi sold off all his instruments in order to create, in his words, “a new color palette.”  He also enlisted Jonny Rogoff (of Yuck) on drums, Darcy Cicci (of The Antlers) on bass and Gaspar Claus on cello (a collaborator with Sufjan Stevens and The National).  Check out the video and the track list for Permanent Signal below.
