Sunglaciers – Avoidance [Music Video]

Today the Calgary band Sunglaciers dropped their crazy freaky music video for Avoidance.
The leading second single is taken from their upcoming second album called
Subterranea which comes out on March 25, 2022 via Mothland.
A cool heavy indie rock psych & electro pop tune.

About the track
The band is also sharing the second track from the album, “Avoidance”, an epic post-punk scorcher fueled by a restless drumbeat and an alarming synth hook, atop inhuman screams from Louis Cza (Roman66, The Black Greek God), and screeching violins from Laura Reid, a member of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Its lyrics introduce the album’s themes of alienation, feeling abandoned but also culpable, with Resnik describing the song as “a stranded panic anthem.”

Like the full-length, the single was co-produced by Chad VanGaalen and mixed by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Yves Jarvis, The Unicorns). Arriving today complete with a video from directors Ryan Kostel and Sunglaciers lead vocalist Evan Resnik, the video depicts “a nightmare scenario with the protagonist in a panic as he is tormented by figures he thought were his friends, ultimately coming face-to-face with himself,” says Resnik. “The fogged-out rooms, varied lighting, and overlaid shots pull the viewer inside this dreamscape and accentuate the anxiety and trepidation we explore in the song.”

“When filming ‘Avoidance’ I really wanted to mimic the anxious, unsettled mind,” adds Kostel. “Constantly shifting angles, I used long fluid shots and shifts in time to create an unbalanced sensation. Rapid fluctuations of light and color layered over kinetic and sometimes violent imagery help to convey the subject’s mental unease.”
