Earlier this year, Jaga Jazzist announced their return with a new single, ‘Spiral Era’, and a new album, Pyramid. Initially slated for an April release, Pyramid had to be postponed due to the global pandemic and will now arrive on August 7th through Brainfeeder. The Norwegian iconic octet have just shared a new single, ‘Tomita’, which pays homage to Japanese composer and pioneering synth player Isao Tomita. ‘Tomita’ comes with an accompanying video directed and animated by Jengo, who had this to say about it:
“The upbeat pace of the song felt fitting to have the character run the whole time, tearing through the desert barely stopping to appreciate the view, with the warm hues of the desert echoing the strong red color of the album cover. Stylistically I knew it had to feel epic and grand yet very minimal and clean, so I was looking at video games for inspiration, mostly Zelda and Journey, some anime and some 70’s sci-fi book covers for the scale and the surrealist feel.”
