We are very honoured to bring you the video for the track ‘Not My Sound’ from Italian shoegaze band Kodaclips. The italogaze movement in Italy has seen some tremendous shimmering sonic noise being emitted from this region – think of bands like Clustersun, Stella Diana, The Backlash and Rev Rev Rev to name but a few as prime examples – and Kodaclips can proudly take their place in this illustrious group.
‘Not My Sound’ is a sun-blocking wave of sound that fills the senses. Insistent drums drive a barrage of fuzzy, howling guitars over the top of distant, arctic vocals that are augmented by a backing chorus haunting and enigmatic. The sound is visceral, thundering, all encompassing, leaving you hollowed out in catatonic bliss at the end.
The video is suitably psychedelic and immersive, with bleached filtered washed out flared lights over a performance backed by sparkles and glitter. Studied, cool band shots are interspersed with the visual onslaught: it is truly a perfect carriage for the wild stormy music.
Take notice: this is a very exciting band. The track comes off Kodaclip’s debut album ‘Glances’ released through Overdub Records.
