With a futuristic sound and a lushly affected lead vocal, Still + Storm launches their new video for All of These Things. As an ex-resident of Madison, I hear some echoes of Butch Vig and Garbage. Judging by enigmatic front-woman Rachel Raymond's notes about her obsession with 90's era grunge, that is no coincidence.
The production is exquisite, with the dirty guitar lines perched above an electronic groove that feels built with heartbeats. Harmonically speaking, the song knows exactly where it is going with massive stacked intervals and a truly cinematic soundscape that is influenced by 'every sad album, ever'.
All of These Things is the new single from Chicago duo Still + Storm.
