Obsidian Kingdom - "Black Swan" (video) (premiere)

Obsidian Kingdom prepares for release of latest album with intriguing music video and even more intriguing song.

Barcelona’s Obsidian Kingdom will release a new full-length album, A Year With No Summer, in March and has just issued the video “Black Swan” as a taste. And what a delicious bite it is. The group’s sound has never been easy to classify and this track is certainly no exception to that rule. Driven by a gently throbbing electronic pulse and atmospheric keyboards, the track is carried by an emotive vocal performance that places the track somewhere between Porcupine Tree and Radiohead with dashes of more traditional progressive rock swirling in the mix as well.

Following on the heels of the first single, “Away/Absent”, “Black Swan” solidifies early buzz on this record, suggesting that 2016 will be a year when Obsidian Kingdom will connect with a larger fan base than before. The video and song are both haunting and enigmatic and proof that some of the best music does indeed elude easy classification.

Obsidian Kingdom's A Year With No Summer releases March 11.
