Grouper - "Hold the Way"

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Oct 7, 2009 at 12:00 PM

Here's a video for one of the new Grouper songs, "Hold the Way," directed by Weston Currie. Its black and white, strobe-light quality is pretty eerie, and so's the song: Liz Harris starts with a ghostly choir, jarred by a static-y voice, then a peaceful, vibrating electric piano plays a soothing figure as Harris sings a gentle melody. "Hold the Way" is from Grouper's upcoming album Vessel release yet to be determined; probably not a full-length, although it may either be part of an upcoming 12" split with Roy Montgomery, or a standalone Grouper EP called Vessel, or both, or neither.
