Published Aug 17, 2016In addition to his work with Pale Eyes, Toronto-based sound artist Ben McCarthy has been making music under the banner Partials alongside New Jersey composer Ryan Somerville. The pair are set to debut their first track, and Exclaim! is pleased to present the premiere of its accompanying video.
"Jerz" is a nod to Somerville's home state, and marks the first of six suites that will comprise the duo's initial offering Infinities; the remaining pieces will arrive at staggered points throughout the rest of this year.
Partials blend electronic production with orchestral arrangements, creating an eerily intoxicating sound — as demonstrated on "Jerz." The video for the musical suite is an unsettling sequence of shots that show suburban New Jersey through the lens of surveillance and paranoia.
It was shot and directed by Sean Devaney, and you can watch the anxious, drone-assisted clip in the player below right now.
