The Thin Air

Video Premiere: Carried By Waves – Resonation Day


Cork based producer Ronan McCann AKA Carried By Waves releases his second LP Resolute this Friday 22nd of April.  Following on from his 2012 debut full length Softly Held Together the producer and multi-instrumentalist take spacious, colourful electronics and post-rock elements aplenty and continues to create a sound that could be best compared to the likes of Aereogramme and God Is An Astronaut but which holds enough individually and heart to stand steadfast and confident.

To coincide with the album’s release, the producer has debuted the video for leading track Resonation Day. With its orbiting guitars and cinematic pianos and keys the track’s instrumentation is very reminiscent of the aforementioned God is An Astronaut but with the added vocals and exquisite production that comparison does not veer too close for comfort. Instead, the track is a warm, emotive and elegant piece of vocal post-rock that serves as a tantalising teaser the album as a whole.

The video, by David Nelligan, is a galactic affair that plays with subtle colours and geometrics to create an ideal companion piece for the music.

Resolute will be available to purchase from Carried By Waves’ Bandcamp with live dates to be announced in the coming months.
