Fassine are pleased to share the animated video for ‘Gold’ today, taken from their forthcoming second album, ‘Gourami’ – released 28th July. The song comes after taster track ‘Feather Jesus’ was released earlier on in the year to solid acclaim across the blogosphere.

On the track, Fassine say:

“Gold’ plays with the idea of the post-death condition and it’s tragic beauty, how this passing can be inviting and perfect.”

Notion say:

“The video for the track is just as dramatic. Animated by James Gilleard, it shows the group, or at least a version of them, retreat to a mountain-top mansion where they’re joined by friends for some time off the grid, or so it seems. Things soon take a sinister turn, and the real reason for the group’s getaway becomes apparent. The video is just as cinematic as the track itself, so we won’t give away any spoilers.”

The London trio made a name for themselves last year with their icy, cinematic take on electronic music for ‘Dialectik’, a debut album that saw them gain praise & support from the likes of Spin, Q Magazine, The 405, The Guardian, Giles Peterson, BBC 6 Music and more.

The band have a keen ear for the cinematic with their songs featuring on the backdrop of high-profile American TV drama’s including Sky Atlantic’s The Following, Fox’s Lucifer, Sony’s The Art Of More and more…

The band recently featured on artist Robot Koch’s haunting track, Spine and also re-worked his latest single ‘Heart Is A River’ released on Monkeytown Records.
