“…Lonely Hearts Club Left Behind…”
In “Time Rider”, Chromatics employs the metaphor of a motorcycle as a sort of inter dimensional vehicle between the future and the past. In this dream, the motorcyclist mirrors myths of the grim reaper as Ruth Radelet eerily asks “Can I take your hand? I want to ride with you into the storm.” Life after death. Future past.
Produced & Mixed By Johnny Jewel. Out now on Italians Do It Better.

Today, German electronic producer and visual artist Christian Löffler shares the sublime animated video for “Like Water (feat Mohna)” via Complex, the first single off the LP “Graal (Prologue)” out 4/5 on Ki-Records.
“Like Water (feat. Mohna) is chilling and spectral electronica. As the main character gazes at the ocean and the waves’ movements, cathartic and peaceful emotions emerge. Christian’s music takes us into the comfort of solitary metaphysical wandering. The video was directed by Magnus Lenneskog and Tezo Kyungdon Lee – the founders of the award-winning Tjoff Koong Studios who’ve led the animation on Wes Anderson’s film “Isle of Dogs” and are behind numerous Gorillaz videos.
Christian’s new LP “Graal (Prologue)”, out 4/5, oscillates between melancholic ambient minimal, euphoric neo-classical techno and downtempo psychedelic, and is a reflection of Christian’s frustration of not having the mental space at the time to create music, solely focusing on visual art instead – painting, drawing. Therefore the music unfolds like a painting. Drawing from his art gave him the freedom to create without restraints, and to “turn off my brain a bit, especially thoughts about what is possible or not”, he explains
“Graal (Prologue)” follows two well-received LP’s, “Mare” (2016) and “A Forest” (2012), both released on Ki-Records.
More US tour dates to be announced.
“Graal (Prologue)” Tracklist:
2. Running (feat Josephine Philip)
4. Like Water (feat Mohna)
Here’s the video for Janus Rasmussen’s (from Kiasmos) debut single “Green Wine”.
It’s directed by the talented HEIDRIK and depicts the Faroese folk tale of “kópakonan”, the seal woman.

Directed by David Horsburgh at Agile Films the video brings to life Maribou State’s ‘Kingdom (feat. North Downs)’. Drawing on the themes of their recent album “Kingdoms In Colour”, the visuals build a ‘universe of picture postcards in bloom’. “We wanted to create a video that echoed the track’s themes of travel and exploration,” explains Horsburgh, “playing with the ways in which people travelling can change and transform landscapes as well as themselves. So a mixed media collage approach really spoke to us; sourcing vintage footage from creative commons sources and then subverting it with VFX to turn it into something new. The flower motif from the band’s album artwork was the inspiration for the flowers that grow throughout the video; out of canyons, eyes and even on the moon!”
Taken from the album ‘Kingdoms In Colour’, released 7 September 2018 on Counter Records.
Taken from “No Geography”, the forthcoming album from The Chemical Brothers.
