Jorge Elbrose, a collaboration between Ariel Pink and Jorge Elbrecht, have released a hazy and entrancing new video for their gorgeous shoegaze number, “Called To Ring.” The experimental rock track is off the Mexican Summer: Five Years commemorative book, and the track is exclusively available on the book’s 10″, which feature other collaborations between Autre Ne Veut & Fennesz, Bay Of Pigs (Spiritualized, Soldiers of Fortune, and Neil Hagerty,) Quilt and more. The “Called To Ring” was directed by Jorge Elbrecht himself and it has some intriguing mystical and psychedelic elements to it. Watch it below.
Elbrecht elaborates on the concept: “For this video we tried to imagine a perfect band to play ‘Called to Ring,’ and I think we succeeded. The idea was to have a wash of hair, camo and white guitars all happening in slow motion, with Ariel and I popping in and out as these cold, eyeless theater masks. As we sing in unison on the recording, we thought we should spend the bulk of the video conjoined. Such a pleasure to work on this with everyone, I’m really proud of how it turned out.”
