Plaid - "35 Summers" (video)

Let's be blunt. It's unlikely that Plaid's debut single from their forthcoming album Scintilli will become as anthemic or well-known a tune as "Eyen" or their remix of Björk's "All Is Full of Love". However, there is a beauty to the abstract tendrils of their freeform sound here, which veers far closer to avant-classical than their previous melodicisms. This is reinforced by the video, featured an anachronistic Chinese mistress submerged in water, twisting and dancing in sensual parallax to a wafting octopus.
