Single Lash – “Recurring Dream” (Official Video)
Single Lash is a lovely, uber-talented 3-piece noise/shoegaze outfit out of Austin, TX that I’ve recently become quite fond of since my recent inception into Austin’s burgeoning music scene. They are intensely reserved and thoughtful individuals, yet they’ll annihilate your ears with undeniable rhythms and cavernous vocal hooks at the drop of a dime (aka with each listen/during every show). Their debut full-length, Almost Breathing, is a tried and true testament to the above, highlighting the intensely emotional tug-of-war I feel when ingesting their aural offerings.
Enter Austin’s Mellisa Cha, the director, videographer, and visionary behind Single Lash‘s brand new music video for Almost Breathing standout “Recurring Dreams”. She effortlessly creates the perfect visual companion for Single Lash‘s sound—a realm that is both dark and majestic all the same.

All the footage was shot in an old tennis court and our living room, where we spent a lot of time playing with some lazers I’d rented. I wanted to experiment with organic visual effects during the shooting process that I could digitally curb or emphasize in editing. “Recurring Dream” has a really nice dynamic between hard and soft – machine driven rhythms cut through layers of shifting guitar and vocal textures. I tried to visually emulate this dynamic while complementing the overall emotional tone of the song. You know, like a music video!

‘Almost Breathing’ is our official debut album. It consists of ten predominantly downbeat aural structures given skeletal form by the subtlety driving rhythm section, fleshed out with reverbed guitar textures. It is currently available for download or on CD and It will be released on cassette by Whatever Forever early this year.
