Video: Cymbals Eat Guitars – ‘Laramie’

Strange spectral vocals, accompanied by repetitive and almost-robotic instrumentation, that swell into a huge shoegaze crescendo with guitar work that would make Graham Coxon blush. Of course, it’s the newest single from Cymbals Eat Guitars. And, despite the name, it’s definitely a guitar dominated track.

Video is trippy as hell, but that’s pretty fitting with the neon shoegaze tinge of the track. It’s basically a performance with a lot of cool effects thrown in because, screw it, effects are fun. Why watch a video performance when you could watch one with coloured shapes? Give me yellow square overlays any day!

You can watch the yellow squares below – and other shapes too. There’s also an ocean and a pretty awesome song. Amazing!
