Today we’re excited to debut the new song and video, “Snow Globe,” from Seattle band Anonioni.
The part stop motion / part live action video recalls classic surrealist and sci-fi films like Eraserhead and 2001: a Space Odyssey. The song, a cloud of spacey vocals, moody synths and guitar feedback, is the perfect soundtrack for the visuals of director Kyle Todaro.
Antonioni began in 2016 when longtime Seattle solo artist, Sarah Pasillas, a frequent performer at Nada Contributor Tim Basaraba’s TBASA’s Lo-Fi All Stars showcase for local songwriters, recruited band members to flesh out and record several songs she had written for her next album.
The result was 2017’s Lullablaze EP, a jangly, lo-fi record released on Seattle label Den Tapes. The release drew strong praise, including from The Grey Estates, who deemed Lullablaze as: “ [a] step into the heart of something astounding.” One year later, and the band has generated a healthy buzz while opening for bands like Spirit Award (#41for2018), Whitney Ballen, and Jo Passed and playing Seattle’s DIY music festivals like BIG BLDG BASH.
In 2017, the band started writing and recording new songs with producer Rick Hoag (Lonely Mountain Lovers) at MRX Studios in SODO. The result is the new EP, The Odds Were All Beating Me, a polished and more expansive effort that’s due out January 2019 on Den Tapes.
