With just over a month to go until the release of their second album, Sydney trio Key Out have shared the clip for their latest single, ‘Stray’.
If you’re a fan of Sydney’s Key Out, then the countdown is definitely on for the release of their new record, Anthropomorphia. An eclectic release that drift between electro-inspired post punk, filtered summery pop, and close mic’d folk, there’s something for everyone on the forthcoming album.
Having shared their latest single, ‘Chorus’, last month, the trio made up of Paddy Haid, Rohan Geddes, and Caroline Wake have now offered up the video for their latest album cut, the powerful ‘Stray’.
An exceptional wall of sound that would easily fit in the discographies of either Kev Shields or Steve Albini, the Wayne Connolly-mixed track sees the trio dishing out a mesmerising mix of post-punk instrumentation, wrapped up in a slick two-and-a-half minute package that truly commands your attention.
Backed by a video featuring natural elements, the clip is a reminder to not take the little things for granted, and is a perfect example of the group overcoming global adversity to deliver a clip that stands out in the crowd.
“The video for ‘Stray’ is a study of small details – blinks, bugs and blades of grass,” Haid explains of the track. “The sort of things you might miss in the rush of ‘everyday’ life that have come back into focus recently.
“It’s probably not the video we would have made in a pre-lockdown world, but we’re really happy with it. It’s a bit of an exercise in finding creativity in constraints.”
Key Out are set to release Anthropomorphia on June 26th via the iconic Half A Cow label, with pre-orders available via Bandcamp.
