Watch The Soft Moon's new video for "Wasting"

13 April 2015, 11:36 | Written by Laurence Day

The Soft Moon has shared the new visual accompaniment to "Wasting", the latest cut severed from recent LP Deeper.

The clip, directed by Y2K, stars Oscar-nominated actor Robert Forster (Mulholland Drive, Jackie Brown, Breaking Bad). It's described as "an archetypal summation of the turmoil and torture raging within the character of The Patient, played by Luis Vasquez [The Soft Moon]. The Doctor guides The Patient... on a hypnagogic journey into the interior landscape of the mind, a world fraught with tumultuous stroboscopic activity and unbalanced."

In our 8/10 review of the record, we said that "The shadow of mid-nineties industrial music is referenced throughout Deeper. The title track is a revisit to the early ‘90’s material of Ministry with a touch of Front 242 tribalism, whereas “Without” is a desolate vocal re-take of Nine Inch Nails’ “A Warm Place” from their Downward Spiral album, and the overwrought closer “Being”, containing the line "I can't see my face. I don't know who I am. What is this place? I don't know where I am” repeated from creepy tape recorded whisper to full on visceral scream, could easily be mistaken for KMFDM at their most gut wrenching... suicide, paranoia, inner turmoil, feelings of worthlessness, it’s all here for our delectation, his pain: our gain."

Deeper is out now on Captured Tracks.
