Watch: The Acid - "Fame"

19 May 2014, 12:45 | Written by Jim Fletcher

Featuring a dance troupe known as WIFE, the new video from stellar electro collaboration The Acid is a touching and at times beautiful celebration of the human form.

The Acid is three seperate and notable musical entities: Adam Freeland, the globe trotting DJ, Producer, label boss and Grammy nominee; Californian composer, producer and professor Steve Nalepa, and LA-based artist and producer Ry X. They began by hanging out and sharing songs and ideas via phones as they travelled the world before taking to the studio. The result of it all is a debut album, Liminal, released worldwide on 7 July via Infectious Music.

The band have given fans a whiff of what to expect from Liminal with the release of a new video for album track, “Fame”. It opens with bubbling electro sounds, over which vocals swoosh all ethereal in nature. The whole thing sweeps from side to side, mushrooming with additional layers of guitars, unanchored at points from a beat before finding itself moored to something more conventional as it hits the chorus. “Fame” has a dreamy, ambiguous beauty that captures your heart.

The accompanying video, directed jointly by Ry X and Dugan O’Neal (TV On The Radio, The Glitch Mob), is a beautiful and at times moving study of the human form.

Catch The Acid at Cargo, London on 2 June and The Haunt, Brighton on 3 June.
