Supersonic is proud to premiere the brand new video by Mésange – who appeared on our Supersonic Stage 3 this year at the Festival.
Mésange are pleased to announce the first single from their new album ‘Gypsy Moth’. ‘Foe’ is accompanied with a beautifully shot video by renowned photographer Steve Gullick.
Mésange is a collaboration between composer/violinist Agathe Max and composer/musician Luke Mawdsley (Cavalier Song). Their second release, Gypsy Moth, anticipates the forces of nature, creation and rebirth. Mordant musical tapestries (Minimalism, Drone and Ambient) are washed in dense electric skies, exposing signs that flutter and flare in dark elegance. The listener, like the moth is drawn precariously on a journey towards the light, a parchment moon hovering on tides of vermillion heat, where eager wings beat and pulse abstract sounds.
Ubiquitous modal loops, inspire tension and mystery, a golden harvest where forbidden fruits are gathered by furtive hands mindful of a coming storm. We expect the unexpected – a host of chimeric beasts and strange familiars that haunt and rehabilitate the souls of broken machines snarled in barbed wire and trembling flowers. Fleeting birds fall and spin in blue skies, surreal, sublime, queer and uncanny, as strangers ponder the summer snow that settles in the gloom of a shadowy forest. Possessed by electricity, a mercurial gypsy rides the fragile breeze inscribing designs that mesmerise the witness, whose solemn gaze is diverted from the earth and land towards the mystery of the stars, a canvass where conceptual essence finds a surface in black infinity. Mésange implore you to explore the threshold between dawn and dusk, self and other, where unfettered territories are sensually intimated in fecund sounds that teeter between lightning and thunderclap.
