Light Years Video Four: WL || Refraction.

The gorgeous “Refraction” is the fourth track on Portland trio WL's forthcoming sophomore LP, Light Years, set for release via XRAY Records on October 28th, 2016. Over the last two years, the band has been collaborating with various Oregon visual artists to complete an accompanying film for the new record. The album tracks were split up between the different visual artists, who then created their own song-length short films to go with them. The combination of these videos will create a single film, soundtracked by the album in its entirety. Light Years will be presented as a two-part “visual album.”

The radiant, translucent video for "Refraction" was created by Elaina Tardiff, known to WTSH readers by way of our many posts about her band, Tender Age (whom we interviewed here and here).  The footage was all taken in the home of WL bassist and vocalist Misty Mary. WL and Elaina reveal more about the track and video in conjunction with the original premiere on Impose.

Light Years will be available digitally and on 12" vinyl. Pre-order the album here.
