This is the first new material from Linen Closet since their self-titled debut record release last year. And oh what a return this is.
We’d stated about Linen Closet prior as a band that is of: “A spawning of horn splay with poetry and lyrical explorations, as the frame of the pitch for resilience of the human condition, tries its best. A cry out for help and assistance, spout out in bravery, as Linen Closet’s benevolence cast that glow, in spite.”
Majesty and tranquility come to mind when listening to the vascular vibes of this translucent glimmer of a project. With altruistically abound atmospherics at the helm, the profound undulations of par for the course, grates with unalterable ambiguity, within the confines of what ails us deeply.
Concerns and procedures, bog down our sensibilities, taking off of our plans and ambitions. And without notice and familiarity, we’re swept off course into another wilds of the forest that seemed unfathomable.
The singles ‘Too Fast’ is a part of a larger arc of story. And the “abstracted story about Linen Closet’s journey in creating the 2018 debut album: from early creative excitement, to abandoning excitement for responsibilities, to slowly waking from a life without creativity, and eventually living a life of joyful expression while still feeling uncertain about the future.”
For this video, they partnered with director Alex Penrose (Future Museums, Single Lash) and analog projectionist Devin Royer (aka Astral Visions). They have created that dreamy sequence of events and wants that was called for in this single.
Linen Closet was born out of a mutual love for experimental music & theatre, and an appreciation for deeply introverted melodies & lyrics. It is a project that consists of members: Aaron Castillo, Henna Chou, Adam Hilton, John Vinyard, Andrew Stevens, and Matthew Grusha.
See them play next @ Swan Dive, Austin Texas on December 7th.
