New York Minimal Synth duo Xeno & Oaklander’s released their new single, ‘The Staircase’, this week. An arpeggio fuelled synthesizer lament, the analog electronics conveying just as much frustration as the lyrics. Still, the track isn’t nearly as cold as the outfit’s previous offerings, ‘The Staircase’ is almost warm and dreamlike, if a little edgy.
The Taryn Waldman directed video is a grainy, stark, haunted journey through an 19th-century Brooklyn tenement building.
‘The Staircase’ is taken from Xeno & Oaklander’s forthcoming new album, ‘Sets and Lights’, which drops 11th October via Wierd Records.
‘The Staircase’ single is out now.
