Leicester, England-based Indie band Dayflower is fresh from releasing “Nimbus”, an evocative album-length sonic journey combining unheard music with additional production and visuals from audiovisual artist Andy Harper (AJH).
WL//WH is pleased to premiere the video that accompanies the instrumental title track, a striking convergence of soundscapes and captivating visuals that push the collaboration into brave new territories.
Sound-wise Harper’s re-elaboration contains no sung vocals but breaks into brief interludes of Eckhart Tolle‘s contemplative words that encourage viewers to explore the interconnectedness of their consciousness:
Liquid psychedelic visions expand embedded archetypal symbols into graphic prismatic connections, merging polarizing hues into a purple fog of asymmetric icy bright clarity. Timeless, dreamy, comforting mentor elucidations guide the listener through a transformative tapestry of celestial shapeshifting skies, throbbing organic bass plucks, and creativity-inducing immersive imagery, deconstructing time and space into a transcendent headspace where dreams and ideas bloom.
Trippy abstract thought-provoking visuals blend computer-generated geometry configurations with murky overlay suggestions to sync seamlessly with the heady ambiance of the instrumental soundtrack. Alternating red and blue subconscious dimensions shift perception alongside distant conversational field recordings, warm droning swathes, low, vibrating tones, and hypnotic soft, at times subtly crisp, rolling percussions, whilst depth-defying linear entanglements disintegrate rigid, memorized patterns into generative granular frequencies.
