Noveller – “Glacial Wave” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

As Noveller, Austin post-rock composer Sarah Lipstate creates vast landscapes of sound, the kind of music that drifts through the air and fills in the space around you. So she makes a fascinating foil for the jarringly visceral Iggy Pop, who she’ll be supporting on the imminent Post Pop Depression tour. One fine example of Lipstate’s powers is “Glacial Wave,” a six-minute slow-burn from Noveller’s recently reissued Glacial Glow. Today the song gets a video by Fractal Visuals that amplifies its feeling of neon-lit darkness. It’s a mythic tale featuring three characters — The Creator, the Future, and the Protector — and it looks as ominously pretty as the music sounds. Watch below.
