Italian noise band Solaris has debuted a new music video today for the twin tracks “Maledetti/Marnero” – filmed with a combination of live performances and striking visual content. The track comes from their recent album Un Paese di Musichette Mentre Fuori c’è la Morte, out now via Bronson Recordings. The live portion of the video was filmed by Claudio Stanghellini, shot at Bronson Club during a post lockdown release party. While the band seamlessly shifts dynamics and obtuse motifs, they blend different musical styles of noise, post-Rock, psych rock, metal, and more; they draw the most influence from artists such as Helmet, Shellac, or The Jesus Lizard. Un Paese di Musichette Mentre Fuori c’è la Morte was produced by legend Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, Unsane). Watch the new video, exclusively at Ghost Cult
