Heterotic, the duo consisting of Planet Mu boss Mike Paradinas and partner Lara Rix-Martin, are set to release second album 'Weird Drift' in a few months. Not long before last year's 'Love and Devotion' Heterotic shared a Dummy Mix of Detroit influences, with Paradinas suggesting then that the follow-up was "almost done", and was "very different, in my eyes more poppy, Lara says it’s more “trip-hop”".
Nearly a year on, Rain reflects Paradinas' claims pretty well, with the Vangelis atmospherics of their debut replaced by a kinder, poppier synth sound. Featuring Vezelay on vocals, who's present throughout the album, this video is directed by visual artist (and occasional music producer Konx-om-Pax), who surrounds Vezelay in sharp globules of colour.
Planet Mu release 'Weird Drift' on April 21st 2014.
