Lionlimb have unveiled the new video for the second single, “Clover,” off their upcoming album, Tape Recorder, dropping February 23rd (Bayonet.) Lionlimb’s Stewart Bronaughremarks says of the track, “The song is sort of about things having two sides. When something can bring you so much joy one minute and chaos the next.” He continues, “This video started to make sense of itself as we were shooting. I had just bought a 16mm camera and Joey [Bell] and I were playing around with it. Learning how to work it and coming up with ideas at the same time.”
Tape Recorder is a collection of six tracks written by Bronaugh after Lionlimb’s second European tour in Fall 2016, primarily on piano in Columbia University practice rooms. After having collaborated with a friend who plays cello, Bronaugh began expanding the songs to include violin, cello and bass clarinet. Having been the first time he scored music by hand, Bronaugh looked to ‘70s minimalist composers for research. After recording the entire album live, the resulting six tracks on Tape Recorder are reflective, soulful, and based around loose themes of family and memory. The minimal, bare-bones live recording of the album and collaborative orchestration of the music give Tape Recorder a deeply human and tangible beauty.
