Thus far, the Shaking The Habitual campaign has been characterised by excess.
There were the glitzy/creepy press shots, the lengthy manifesto, and the surreal short film. Then, of course, there was the record – a wildly ambitious collection of collage, sort-of-songs and disorientating instrumental interludes.
‘A Cherry On Top’ is a much less spectacular affair than previous videos, featuring two gently modulating mesh patterns drawn in Shaking The Habitual-style green on pink. The track, meanwhile, is one of the weirder moments on a deeply strange album, closer in spirit to Lustmord or Ben Frost than anything on Silent Shout. [via Dummy]
