Ahead of their upcoming London show at Bush Hall on October 23rd, Japanese math-rockers LITE today share a brand new video for ‘Warp’, a stand-out moment from their brilliant Cubic LP, which was released at the tail-end of 2016 via both Topshelf Records (U.S) and I Want The Moon (Japan).
Playful and inspired, the new video, which was directed by Takayuki Kojima, sees the quartet transformed in to paper cutouts for their performance of ‘Warp’ – itself a jaunty and melodic burst of the band’s signature style, honed over the past decade and over the course of their five full-length albums. Led by somewhat refined, but always sprightly, vocals, the track is informed most pertinently by the jagged runs of guitar and percussion that mostly drive the whole thing forward, but are also equally content and adept at sitting back, allowing some much needed breathing space within a genre that often diminishes such a thing.
A spirited accompaniment to the track, you can check out the ‘Warp’ video below right now and find more details about next week’s London show right here.
