BLACK MARE: New Video From Dark, Psychedelic Moon Movers Now Playing At Noisey; Split With Lycia To See Release This Saturday

Today, Vice’s music portal, Noisey, offers up the visual accompaniment to BLACK MARE‘s “Low Crimes,” a hymn that comes by way of the band’s forthcoming split 7″ with Lycia, set for release on Record Store Day via Magic Bullet Records.

BLACK MARE is the dark ambient side project of Ides Of Gemini frontwoman, Sera Timms. On “Low Crimes,” bandmates from Ides Of Gemini and Mustard Gas & Roses (MGR) contribute to an aurally lush, yet glacially-paced cruise through Timms’ frozen world wherein she encourages the mind’s eye to notice relics like the feathers of fallen angels scattered about the snow. Ice crystals form on an old church bell in the distance as the subarctic tones of the composition take over everything in their path. There is no escape and there will be no thaw.

“I was trying to capture a deep, lush underworld feeling on ‘Low Crimes,'” elaborates Timms of the track, “but I wanted there to be a thread of light and softness. My own voice was not providing this, so I ended up having Tara Vanflower from Lycia add backing vocals which gives the vocal parts this perfect ethereal shimmering quality just hovering above the darkness.”

Directed by Timms, the haunting visual journey that comprises “Low Crimes,” is currently playing at Noisey who issues of the tune, “…the slow-burn heroin blues of the track is made even more ethereal with Timms’s vocal, who shifts the song down an even darkly enchanting path. ‘Low Crimes’ is witchy, unique, and ultimately gorgeous stuff, and the video is similarly enthralling.”
