Here at Rock Sins we’ve long been fans of Germany’s post-rock instrumental maestros Long Distance Calling. So the news that they have a brand new album – How Do We Want To Live? – releasing on the 26th of June through InsideOut is a welcome boost as lockdown continues.
What’s more, “LDC” have released a brand new single, titled Voices. The video for the track focuses on a relationship between a human and an artificial intelligence (AI), and is the band’s most ambitious video to date (being more of a short movie). Check out the video (which some may consider NSFW) here:
Here are some thoughts from Long Distance Calling on both their new single Voices and its accompanying video, and their new album How Do We Want To Live?
“This the video for our new single “VOICES”.
The song has a very meditative vibe and sounds like a soundtrack by LDC.
As some of you might know „How Do We Want to Live?“ is a thoughtful and thematic record and it deals with the coexistence of humans and machines.
So we are very proud to present you this short movie.
We think it’s by far the best LDC video to date and it traces the layered story of a relationship between a human and an AI!
Please watch this video carefully, share it with you friends and let us know your thoughts and comments!
A little warning at the end: the video contents some explicit parts and therefore it’s NOT for children!
Peace & Love from LDC!”
