It’s been a while since Balmorhea released new material but there’s a new album on the way from the Austin, Texas based duo of Rob Lowe and Michael Muller. The follow-up to 2012’s Stranger, Clear Language, arrives on September 22nd through Western Vinyl.
On Clear Language, the pair goes back to the simplicity of their roots. “They eschewed complexity for complexity’s sake, allowing a watery, sand-hued mood to settle over their use of analog synthesizers, piano, vibraphone, electric and bass guitar, violin, viola, field recordings, and, for the first time in the band’s history, trumpet,” describes the label. “A relaxed, clear-eyed sense of reflection flows gracefully through the album as these two old friends transmit unfettered meaning through simple sonic gestures that resonate with the cosmos as much as they echo the pulse of a human heart.”
Balmorhea had previously shared the album’s opener and now they are offering another gorgeous taste with a new track, ‘Sky Could Undress’. It comes with a video, the first of a Clear Language Film Trilogy by LA based artist Claire Cottrell. Check out both below.
