Ahead of their antic­i­pat­ed new album Hyper-dimen­sion­al Expan­sion Beam, Lon­don-based cos­mic jazz rave trio The Comet is Com­ing share a new video for Tech­ni­colour. The uncom­pro­mis­ing and unset­tling work is pro­duced by Joseph J. Gold­man and direct­ed by Char­lies Robins (for Agile Films) who has worked with Bey­once, Bonobo and Rudimental. 

The track is an excit­ing stac­ca­to jour­ney, fre­net­ic with squelchy synths and jit­tery sax, cre­at­ing a pen­sive under­cur­rent. This gath­ers in pace and inten­si­ty; the music mir­rors the men­tal anguish of the two char­ac­ters in the video, who dance and writhe in a bleak and aban­doned indus­tri­al space.

Push­ing bound­aries is some­thing that appears to come nat­u­ral­ly to The Comet is Com­ing. Dana­logue from the band com­ments on the cir­cle, an image which is preva­lent in the video: “The cir­cle sym­bol­is­es many things: strength, con­nec­tion, let­ting go of expec­ta­tions and the beau­ty in imper­fec­tion. By being drawn into this new poten­tial­i­ty, we can tran­scend the cur­rent con­di­tions of our cul­tur­al pro­gram­ming and move for­ward togeth­er.  Adap­ta­tion is born out of neces­si­ty and is both ter­ri­fy­ing and awe­some in equal amounts.” 

Hyper-Dimen­sion­al Expan­sion Beam by The Comet is Com­ing is set for release Sep­tem­ber 23 via Impulse! Records.
