VESSELS share surreal video for ‘Radiart’ + new album on the way

UK site Loud & Quiet today premiered Vessels’ video for the hypnotic and euphoric single ‘Radiart’.

 The first cut taken from a new album to be released later this year, ‘Radiart’ is full of optimism and raw vitality, signalling a new, more muscular and vibrant direction for the Leeds-based five-piece. ‘Radiart’ is Vessels’ first release of 2017 and follows their celebrated 2015 album Dilate, a record firmly focussed on the dancefloor.

 Formed in 2005, Vessels have released four wide-ranging albums, drawing comparisons with everyone from Jon Hopkins to Caribou, Mogwai to Battles. Live, the band have pulled off the elusive trick of translating their intricate, sometimes epic, always uplifting studio creations with a full live band featuring two drummers front and centre.

 Directed by Hand Held Cine Club aka brothers Justin and James Lockey (members of Minor Victories), the new video is all dark humour and surrealist storytelling.

 ‘Radiart’ is available now from Different Recordings.

 “Panoramic and pounding… nothing short of epic” DJ Mag

“Vessels sound like a band widening their horizons to impressive effect” Q

“Each track a synthesized swell… throbbing heartbeats and intricate keyboard weaving.”  London in Stereo

“Luscious, rich, Orbital-like melodies on 4/4 throbbers… we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of [Vessels]” Mixmag

… Vessels may have succeeded in making one of the smartest and most beguiling electronic albums of the year.” DIY
