Video: Porcelain Raft, “Unless You Speak from Your Heart”

Mauro Remiddi bka Porcelain Raft directed the video for sweet and psychedelic “Unless You Speak from Your Heart,” placing himself, a mic stand and two minimally-choreographed alter egos in a crisp white New York room. In the clip, a warm-up game of Simon Says dissolves into reverb and strobe lights. The small room starts to seem smaller, and Remiddi, neatly-shaven, looks un-hampered and serene in spite of it all. He’ll tour the US and Canada through April with a band in support of his debut album Strange Weekend, released yesterday, playing with Smith Westerns, M83 and Youth Lagoon along the way.
