Watch: The Altered Hours – Over The Void


The second single taken from their forthcoming EP On My Tongue, ‘Over The Void’ by Cork five-piece The Altered Hours is a swirling blitz of gnarling haze from a band who continue to break brilliant new territory.

Directed by Helio Leon, with cinematography from Izabela Szczutkowska & Leon, editing by Afghaniscan (Robert Watson) and creative input/style from Sarah Corcoran, the single’s video is a suitably abstracted, lysergic-laced accompaniment to a short song that really rewards the repeated listen.
