White Hills premiere: MIST (Winter)

Prog is proud to premiere MIST (Winter), the latest video from New York space rockers White Hills.

It’s taken from the trio’s seventh album, So You Are… So You’ll Be, which considers the remnants of humanity that will remain long after our civilisation has gone.

They explain: “Long after man has ceased to exist, humankind’s mark on the universe will still be felt. There will be a circular ripple of radio waves created during the 20th and 21st Centuries traveling ever outwards into the cosmos for all eternity, as if caused by a tiny pebble dropped into a perfectly still pond.

“This thin, elegant wave will contain the only remnants of what we were. In it will be all of our films, radio, television, electronic communications and internet activity. It will contain all of our art, history, news and entertainment, in all of its stupidity, glory, inconsequentiality and brilliance – heading outwards across the void to the ends of time itself.”

Vocalist and bassist Ego Sensation tells Prog: “Filmed in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, MIST (Winter) is the first video production from New York collective Dreamhaus, whose purpose is to turn ordinary spaces into magical places. The video blurs the lines between the waking and dream worlds through in-camera effects and cubist-inspired editing techniques.”

So You Are… So You’ll Be is available via Thrill Jockey. White Hills have a series of US and European festival appearances planned during the summer. They’ll play the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia on September 27.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
