With new SET AND SETTING album Reflectionless released January 27th, the band has teamed with Revolver to premiere its video for the album’s opening track, “Saudade.” Watch below and stay tuned for more news, cause a European tour is in the works for the spring, including a slot on Dunk!festival in Belgium.
The video marries tour footage, shot on the road in 2015, with the band’s majestic, instrumental rock. “Saudade” chugs and soars; with two drummers propelling the beat, it drives forward with purpose. Recent reviews of new album Reflectionless compare the band to Pink Floyd, Russian Circles, and Mono.
Reflectionless was recorded by Ryan Haft (Torche, Wrong) at Black Bear Studios in Gainesville, Florida, and mastered by Ed Brooks (R.E.M., Death Cab for Cutie) at Resonant Mastering.
“Gorgeous and unexpectedly heavy… There is a quiet joy held within its tangle of notes… There are metallic moments coursing underneath… Now more than ever, we need beautiful music – and Set and Setting has delivered.”
“Melancholic beauty suspended in the clouds with a birds-eye view of epic terrain… Soul-searing leads and shimmering, bending guitars that convey feelings of wonder and introspection.”
“Set and Setting bring a unique sound… The post-rockers throw a hint of psychedelia and even a metallic edge… The result is a captivating, wordless, genre amalgam.”
“Metallic chug to trippy psychedelia to soaring post-rock beauty… Like Russian Circles teaming with early Pink Floyd.”
“Foregoing the genre’s typical ebb and flow in favor of a rumbling drive toward the unknown… Songs shift and morph like fragments of a particularly vivid dream.”
