Porcelain Raft Releases Visual Stream of New Track, 'Permanent Signal' Out 8/20 On Secretly Canadian

Porcelain Raft’s forthcoming sophomore album, Permanent Signal, sees solo artist Mauro Remiddi moving in a new direction musically. Today, the Brooklyn-based musician released a visual stream he created for the second single, entitled “The Way Out.” Remiddi explained the inspiration behind the standout track, noting that he wrote the song “in New York during Hurricane Sandy. I was walking home, keeping my head down because of the rain. I noticed on the sidewalk that all of the trees had their roots growing throughout the pavement. Nature couldn’t be held back by cement.  I started to notice mold on the walls of buildings and the stains it created, and realized it didn’t matter how many times we paint the walls white, nature will always stain them again, and the stain will grow bigger with time. The vision of it makes you surrender.”

The first single, “Think Of The Ocean, was released last month “Remiddi has loosened his hold on pop and firmly embraces experimental possibilities that classical composition lends on his second full-length.” Filter called the track “eerily beautiful” while Consequence of Sound write, “Remiddi’s work feels extracted from a post-modern foreign film.” Indeed, film plays a role in the artist’s work, as seen in the cinematic album trailer for Permanent Signal, which you can watch here.
