Quebec post-punk band Scattered Clouds have shared their Justice video. About the video, they said “‘Justice’ is a minimalist yet violent interpretation of the abuse of power and unlawful vigilantism rampant in the police force. In the video, Montréal animator Joel Vaudreuil depicts the central antagonist as an allegorical monstrous figure, symbolizing how some communities have come to fear the ones that should be there to serve and protect.” Watch the video clip via YouTube below.
Scattered Clouds is the sound of post apocalyptic romanticism. The Hull, Québec experimental outfit manages to walk the razor thin line between cacophony and delight underscoring auto-fictional narratives with brooding rhythm, cavernous vocals, and precise noise. Terse retro-synthetic soundscapes call to mind the works of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, paired with the uneasy ecstasy of Suicide or the tense, thundering underbelly of Liars. The fog and lo-fi static of their sound makes for a mood that is mysterious and entrancing, like neon-lights or driving down an unlit back road at night.
