[Watch] Porcelain Raft - "Drifting In and Out" (Official Video)

Porcelain Raft, aka Mauro Remiddi, makes excellent use of very minimal props in his new video for his Strange Weekend album opener "Drifting In and Out." Through the simple use of a smoke, lights, and editing techniques, Remiddi creates a spiralling dreamscape that provides the perfect imagery for the song. Check it out above (via NPR First Watch).

Porcelain Raft's debut studio album Strange Weekend is out now via Secretly Canadian, and the 7" single for "Drifting In and Out," backed with b-side "Chains," is set for release on June 26th. As well, Porcelain Raft is set to go on tour starting tomorrow, with tour dates spanning both Europe and North America. Take a look at his full tour itinerary after the jump.
