Video Premiere: Chrome Canyon "Branches"
- Words: Anthony Princi
Brooklyn synthesizer maestro Chrome Canyon has just released his DIY video for "Branches," a tune lifted off his forthcoming Elemental Themes LP. The video—which was shot, edited, and directed by the man himself—features a dream-like sequence of time-lapsed clouds moving rapidly across a purple sky (the effect was apparently inspired by the seminal 1982 film Koyaanisqatsi). The images pair well with Chrome Canyon's overtly cinematic, '80s-inspired tune, one that is clearly more futuristic than its title implies. And if you're feeling the expansive vibes of "Branches," be sure to check out the preview of his forthcoming Elemental Themes LP before it drops on October 9 via Stones Throw, below.
