Back in September, New York-based singer/songwriter Elliot Moss re-released his debut album 'Highspeeds', following its initial low-key release in 2014. A highlight of the full-length is the near-silent, downcast Pattern Repeating, which finds Moss warbling among a canvas of percussion and incidental melody that gained comparisons to similar-minded crooners Thom Yorke, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and James Blake
Ahead of a nine-date tour in the U.K. and Europe, Moss has shared a video (premiering below) that mimics the eerie resonances of the song. Without revealing too much of the plot, the short film presents voyeurism in suburban environments, focusing mainly on a group of individuals in morph suits going through their daily routine. However, there is an outside to the group: a golden dressed outsider enters the scenes later, with possibly some connection between him/her and the paranormal activity that ensues towards the finalé.
Watch the video for Pattern Repeating above and if you're in London, catch Elliot Moss perform at The Moth Club on December 4th (details here).
