Published Dec 02, 2015Icelandic electronic duo Kiasmos recently dropped a new EP entitled Swept, and now "Gaunt" from that same release has been treated to an accompanying video. Exclaim! has got your exclusive first look at the new clip.
The duo, compiosed of Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen, come together on the latest release to create a balance between "the late-night club energy of the electronic world" and the "wispy, morning ambient drifts" of piano and strings. The hypnotic sound gets matched with equally captivating visuals of a mysterious rotating prism floating atop a majestic-looking mountain.
