ALCEST - unveil music video! - 2019-09-27

2019-09-27 - After recently revealing their first single 'Protection' and performing a genre-crossing set with Perturbator this week, French sound wizards ALCEST are ready to present the second single off their upcoming sixth studio album titled »Spiritual Instinct«. Recorded at the French Drudenhaus Studios and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016’s hugely successful »Kodama«, the new album - the first to be released via Nuclear Blast - will lead the blackgaze pioneers into dark soundscapes full of spiritual catharsis and will be released on October 25th.

Today's single, 'Sapphire' is another magical creation blending shadows and light - the video was directed by Craig Murray (Mogwai, etc) and you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/69fnUZhV8SI

Bandleader Neige comments: "Here’s 'Sapphire', the second single from our upcoming album »Spiritual Instinct«. This one was also written in a very spontaneous, liberating way and has this 80’s post-punk feel that could remind of The Cure, The Chameleons, or even our older side project Amesoeurs. Hope you guys enjoy it."
