Yuki Chikudate and James Hanna are a few weeks away from their third release of 2009 with Rewolf, an acoustically inclined revisitation of highlights from their time together in the very electric project Asobi Seksu. But before we get there, they’re still bringing light to “Transparence,” a standout from their February-released Hush LP that recently got the 10″ treatment and today gets a fittingly diaphanous, dreamy, watery, and floating-luminaria-lit video. Fitting because the track has a gossamer sheen like the best moments of their brand of dream-pop, and fitting because lens filters and various lighting levels are a good look for a track with this one’s name. And a director named Major Lightner.
Hush and the “Transparence” 10″ are both out, with Rewolf due 11/10, all via Polyvinyl.
