The third single from Michael Feuerstack‘s upcoming fourth LP Natural Weather (out May 25) comes to us with an absolutely stunning animation by artist Jon Claytor.

CBC Music premiered the video earlier this week and had this to say about the song:

“Michael Feuerstack’s songwriting has a horoscope-like quality, crafting minute observations on love, death and living that are opaque enough to apply to many while also feeling like they were written specifically for you.” CBC Music

“A lot of recent synth-based artists opt for maximalism, throwing as many sounds and textures into the mix as they can for both variety’s sake and to show off their gear a bit. Montreal-based artist Nick Schofield took the opposite route on his forthcoming album, using only one synthesizer, one effects pedal and a batch of field recordings he made of the natural world. Those simple elements are more than enough to create something soothing and pellucid, meditative and transporting.”
