Video: Darkstar "Amplified Ease"
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Warp-signed outfit Darkstar has shared its video for "Amplified Ease," which offers an upclose and aquatic portrait of the band taking a dive in the same water tank used by the Skyfall filmmakers. To be sure, the video for "Amplified Ease" is more psychedelic than the latest 007 film, with the band engulfed in a sea of its signature color palette: turquoise, marigold, violet, crimson, and all. But the bright colors ultimately fade, and the visual side of "Amplified Ease" ends on a dark note. The song is taken from the band's forthcoming News From Nowhere LP, which is now available to stream in its entirety before Warp drops it on February 5.
