Mauro Remiddi (aka Porcelain Raft) probably shouldn't have eaten a whole sheet of LSD right before hopping into an isolation tank, but what would normally make for an intensely harrowing experience turns out to be a pretty damn good music video.
This new video for "Put Me to Sleep", the first cut off of Porcelain Raft's upcoming debut LP Strange Weekend, features clips of a fully-clothed (and quite dapper looking) Remiddi submerged in a tub of mysterious milky white liquid (we're biting our tongues) and overlaid with acid-tinged kaleidoscopic projections. Much like everything pumped out by this this Italo-Brooklynite bedroom-pop beatsmith, this intoxicating video will send you into an insta-dream state.
Check out the video below and keep an ear open for Strange Weekend, due out on January 24th via Secretly Canadian:
