Published Sep 02, 2015UK-based electronic musician Kel McKeown has been manipulating sound under the moniker Kelpe for more than a decade now, and he just returned with a new album titled The Curved Line. Following up the recent release, he's shared some fresh visuals for album cut "Valerian," and Exclaim! has got your first look at them.
The track reminds listeners of Kelpe's early Warp and Krautrock influences, though his new material is more specifically described in a recent press release as an amalgamation of "sample-heavy beat craft," "oddball ambient" and "dancefloor-ready club grub."
The mesmerizing music has now been matched with some equally captivating graphics that deliver a frenzied onslaught of black-and-white geometric images and designs. The clip was directed by David Sagberg, and it's a sensory overload in the best way possible. You can immerse yourself in it by hitting play below.
The Curved Line is out now on McKeown's own DRUT Recordings.
