I am the light and you
and you are the light for me
and every time I’m blue
you come and shine on me
London-based duo Monochromatic Visions have announced the release of their video for “Run.” from their forthcoming new album REFORM. Bass, guitars, and vocals for this track were recorded by Hannes Plattmeier at Ashfield Street Studios, London.
True to its name, this video initially appears to be a sea of blue, but if you unfocus your eyes, you see a figure running through the streets. The Run Lola Run, or Mauvais Sang vibe is a perfect visualizer for the dreamy, poetic track, bringing to mind Suicide and Sonic Youth with the soaring guitar work of The Cure and Flock of Seagulls. Monochromatic Visions sculpt a dreamscape through their music, fusing indie, shoegaze, and post-punk, with noise pop accents. The result ranges from the insular to the majestic with their reverie of reverb, riffs, and repetition.
Watch the video for “Run” below:
Monochromatic Visions was first conceived in 2014 by Arthur Pegis who solely wrote, produced, and recorded the project’s early releases. He was later joined by Thomas Bagnoli, and Monochromatic Visions went on to support acts such as Tonstartssbandht (with Mac De Marco’s guitarist Andy White) and spiritual psychedelic rockers TAU.
Written and recorded in East London, Monochromatic Vision’s forthcoming new album Reform was produced in Brooklyn, New York by Jared Artaud (The Vacant Lots) and mixed alongside Grammy Award-winning audio engineer Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones, Sonic Youth) who also mastered it.
