Watch New White Hinterland Video for “No Logic”

NoLogic

This weekend, Gorilla VS. Bear premiered the new White Hinterland video for “No Logic,” directed by Solomon Chase. It was filmed on a Spring evening in the woods of North Carolina. Shot in infrared, the video is a stunning black and white interplay that reveals Casey Dienel and Shawn Creeden amidst wandering forest creatures of the night. Its eerie, enigmatic and electrifying! But you really just gotta see for yourself.


White Hinterland are playing at Holocene for Portland’s MusicfestNW on September 10th. You can buy your tickets right here!

White Hinterland Dips Neon Indian’s Glo-Fi In Some Lovely, Gooey Mystery

whitehinterland-575x431

During her many interviews for the recent release of Kairos, White Hinterland’s Casey Dienel often sang the praises of her contemporaries at the edges of bedroom electro-pop (see: Toro Y Moi, Beach House). Her recent take on Neon Indians’ “6669 (I don’t know if you know)” is a bit more dark and sinuous than anything we’ve heard from that circle of artists, and perhaps more in line with the gritty, minimal dubstep of Pantha du Prince. “Decidedly unchillwave,” declared Gorilla vs. Bear in their recent post of the track. We agree. The disco spirit of the original remains, but dipped in some serious, gooey mysteriousness.

Portlanders, the next live appearance from White Hinterland will be Saturday, July 25 at PDX’s Doug Fir, sharing a stage with Bear In Heaven and Twin Sister. THAT’S a solid bill, ye music fans.

WHITE HINTERLAND Premieres “No Logic” Remix, Shares “Amsterdam” Video, Kicks Off International Tour

whitehinterlandaqua2

Like the subtly deep, slowburn dream-pop R&B found on the album, WHITE HINTERLAND’S Kairos has calmly, cooly been winning over hearts of music fan and critic alike. It seems with each day, a new champion of Kairos steps forward. NPR selected Kairos’ opener “Icarus” as its Song of the Day, saying of the jam: “It’s hypnagogic, certainly, but also transformative — these are the sort of reveries that can feed an appetite for wanderlust or make listeners ache for home, depending on the context.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with Casey Dienel, Venus Zine called Kairos “the most contemporary thing that you will hear all year…The influences are apparent, but not overwrought—and the album as a whole sounds complete and definitively unique.”

And lovely remixes of the album have been popping up like Spring lilies in our inboxes. But none have quite captured our hearts like that of NYC electronic artist Alan Wilkis, whose Stereolab-hinting reimagining of Kairos standout “No Logic” fills the originally sparse, jerky-dub track with a chirpy bounce and warm synth melodies. Download “No Logic (Alan Wilkis Remix)” HERE.

In March, our friends at Stereogum premiered the Michaela Copikova-directed video for Kairos deep-cut “Amsterdam,” calling the song “rainy, romantic.” Watch the video for “Amsterdam.”
