NYLON.COM PREMIERE VIDEO FOR TRANSIT
TRANSIT IS TAKEN FROM THE NEW ALBUM ALL BURN OUT NOW ON KSCOPE
“Recalls some of the more wistful, melancholy, late-summer-turning-to-autumn sounds of Surf’s Up-era Beach Boys” Paste
“On All Burn, brothers Casey and Jesse Cooper set complex, bright melodies and heartbeat-pulsing rhythms adrift” NPR
“The band’s sound has evolved into a brilliant array of shimmering sorrow and opaque optimism (with progressive accents in the vein of Muse, North Atlantic Oscillation, or The Pineapple Thief)…All Burn is a short but sweet gem bursting with dense layers and emotional peaks” Big Takeover
The new video for Transit, a track from Ohio duo The Receiver’s new album All Burn – released this week on Kscope – has been premiered on nylon.com, watch here: http://www.nylon.com/articles/video-premiere-the-receiver-transit
The video was shot in Beirut by director Youssef Nassar , a Lebanese-born Canadian responsible for the acclaimed promo for Steven Wilson’s recent single Perfect Life.
“The music is simply superb!” says Nassar of Transit. “Very dreamy, filled with layers of sounds and emotions and I did my best capturing that feel in its video. I think the video has a strong concept behind it, showing a certain type of a fantasy happening, in an abstract and emotional way.”
The band commented: “Transit was written during the beginning of a new relationship. It expresses the emotional highs associated with falling in love, and makes a promise of commitment, regardless of whatever change or loss may come. Youssef played well off of these themes. As the lyrics speak of undying love and unwavering commitment, the video expresses the heartache, tension, and feelings of loss that we all experience.”
Comprised of brothers Casey (vocals, synths/keyboards, bass) and Jesse Cooper (drums & vocals), the siblings call All Burn their “best material to date which focuses on a dreamier aesthetic than our earlier work.”
All Burn is also the first self-produced Receiver album, with mixing handled by Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, Foster the People, Karen O) and mastering by Brian Lucey (Sigur Ros, The Shins, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys).
Formed in 2005 at The Ohio State University, The Receiver released its debut album, Decades, in 2006 on the New York-based, Stunning Models On Display Records. The duo returned with the sophomore offering, Length of Arms, in 2009 through Vital Music Records.
