‘Drifting In And Out’ b/w ‘Chain’ 7" Out 11th June via Secretly Canadian
Ahead of his latest run of UK/EU dates electronic pop purveyor Porcelain Raft has debuted a new live session, this time for Pitchfork TV.
In a study of light, color, and portraiture, Porcelain Raft’s Mauro Remiddi performs ‘Unless You Speak From Your Heart’ taken from current album ‘Strange Weekend’. Pitchfork TV captured this intimate performance for their City Of Music series, watch it here: http://pitchfork.com/tv/city-of-music/1904-porcelain-raft/3107-unless-you-speak-from-your-heart/
Porcelain Raft is about to embark on more UK/EU live dates, starting tomorrow in Bucharest and calling next in London this Saturday (5th May) supporting Here We Go Magic. Full gig info is below, including further shows with Beach House and Lower Dens plus a couple of appearances at The Great Escape and Bestival.
As previously reported, Porcelain Raft is set to release new single ‘Drifting In And Out’ on 7" 11th June in the UK through Secretly Canadian. Album opener ‘Drifting In And Out’ is the Italian born Brooklyn-based singer’s anthemic and chiming call to arms.
Directed by Mauro Remiddi himself, watch the Twin Peaks-esque video for ‘Drifting In And Out’
The 7"s b-side, ‘Chain’, astutely balances melancholy and wistfulness. Remiddi does his best heart string pulling to date as he sings "and I feel something/something I cannot deny/half my life behind."
