ANAMAI brings together Anna Mayberry from Toronto sludge rockers HSY and David Psutka of industrial drone project Egyptrixxx. The result is murky, spacious folk that is far gentler than both members’ previous output. Director Cayden Mowbray’s video for their single “Half” features painted hands against patterned backgrounds, creating a textured visual that’s as simple as it is sensual. The inverted colors and contorted fingers cleverly echo Mayberry’s wispy vocals against Psutka’s atmospherics. Their new album, Sallows, was recorded by Psutka and Josh Korody, who has worked with Fucked Up, Cousins and Greys. Watch the video below.
Sallows is out now via Buzz Records.
