Eluvium Releases New Video from Forthcoming Album "Similes"

Eluvium Releases New Video from Forthcoming Album "Similes"

Portland composer and musician Eluvium, also known as Mathew Cooper, has unveiled a new video directed by Matt McCormick for the tune "The Motion Makes Me Last." The video seamlessly edits together shots from the taller examples of Portland's architecture, as they float by in a way that mysteriously matches the track.

The song will be featured on the upcoming album Similes, to be released February 23rd on Temporary Residence. I would describe what I've heard from Eluvium's previous work as both ambient and minimalist, specifically with regard to the piano work, which I've very much enjoyed.

The new song is beautiful and will hopefully be consistent with the new album. It has the opportunity to appeal to a larger spectrum of listeners, while still remaining close to the dreamy and atmospheric roots that Cooper has been perfecting over his four previous albums.

Check the video out and if you like what you hear, you can snag the song as a free download from Pitchfork.
