Returning with material from their ninth studio album, Iceland’s GusGus continue to innovate and challenge, which is no less than we’d expect from them. ‘Crossfade’ is the first offering from new LP Mexico, due June 23rd via Kompakt.
There’s something about the video for ‘Crossfade’ that’s slightly unsettling. Each stare into the camera lingers just a bit too long. Each strange scene with the characters is presented without context or much of a linear plot, often in the reflection of a mirror, or through a hole in the wall, giving it an almost voyeuristic quality. Unsettling though it may be, the relative stillness of the video juxtaposes perfectly with the song’s intense energy.
