Polvo – Light, Raking (Music Video)

by Steven Spoerl

Polvo’s Siberia was one of 2013’s most unexpected surprises. When that band starts clicking, they can go virtually unmatched in razor-sharp uneasiness and “Light, Raking” was one of Siberia‘s finest examples of this. Yesterday Filter premiered a strangely hypnotic video for the track that features a lot of stop-motion yarn, somehow amplifying the band’s most arresting emotional undercurrents. Like Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color before it, printed words simply can’t do justice to the strangely visceral experience it inspires. Watch “Light, Raking” below and pick up Siberia from Merge.
