Next level loveliness from David Moore’s ensemble.

Last week FACT’s Joe Muggs wrote in praise of the current flush of generalised sedentary psychedelic music, from floaty new age reissues on RVNG to luxury darkness from Function and Vatican Shadow.

One of several new ambient releases recommended was the latest LP from Brooklyn instrumental collective Bing & Ruth, the gorgeously glacial Tomorrow Was The Golden Age. Album track ‘Reflector’ has now been paired with a video by British visual artist and designer Hana Tajima, and in keeping with the album’s serene spirit it was filmed at dawn throughout New York City over several days.

“I realized while I was shooting that I was watching the city wake up,” says Tajima. “It’s that brief time when the day turns from something very private and, in the darkness, very insular to something that belongs to the world.”

“That change feels almost like sleight of hand. Even as you observe it, you are only ever very suddenly aware of the morning. Having witnessed the transition stays with you in a quiet way – a secret shared with those brought in from the night before or the day ahead.”

Watch the video above. Tomorrow Was The Golden Age is out today (October 13) via RVNG Intl. The group are also playing NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge tonight with Ramona Lisa and Ian Drennan.
