Portland’s Reptaliens release their Wrestling EP on the 6th of November via Captured Tracks and to mark that, the band have dropped this mesmerising, but disconcerting video for their first single, Taking.
The video features footage of Oregon aflame at night, and it’s something that enhances the strange, digitally skewed world of Taking. The vocals create a rich and textured sensation of a shifting, uncertain reality, twisting the arrangement’s electro tones into a dark take on Italo. It is both haunting yet incredibly appealing to listen to, even as it feels like an excursion into the realm of the unknown.
You can listen to Taking on all major digital platforms including Spotify and Bandcamp. Be sure to check the band out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, where you can learn more about Reptaliens and the Wrestling EP.
