Scott O))) Release Gisèle Vienne Directed Video for “Brando”

When it was announced that avant-garde composer Scott Walker would be collaborating with drone-doom titans Sunn O))), the general reaction was one of intrigue. Walker had appeared on the track “Alice” from Sunn O)))‘s album Monoliths & Dimensions, so the opportunity to hear this match-up over the course of a full length project tantalized the imaginations of experimentally inclined listeners. The final project, entitled Soused, can now be purchased through 4AD Records here, and in addition, Scott O))) has released a video for the opening track, “Brando,” which can be viewed after the jump.

Director Gisèle Vienne certainly aimed to fulfill Walker‘s description of “Brando” as “A song of unfulfilled…[and] masochistic longing.” Both the song and video are stirring and strange, and fans of either group can arrive at both a visual and sonic consensus of whether Scott O)) is a new super-group or 2014’s Lulu.



"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there's something stronger - something better - pushing right back." - Albert Camus
