SLIFT Shares Official Video for “Weavers’ Weft”

On January 19th, French psychedelic rock outfit SLIFT will release their Sub Pop debut, ILION, on CD/LP/DSP. Formed in 2016, SLIFT quickly made an impression on rockers worldwide with their 2017 debut EP, Space Is the Key, the following year’s full-length La Planète Inexplorée, and their acclaimed 2020 album UMMON.
Now, on the heels of the previously released singles “Ilion” and “Nimh,” comes an official video by Guthio and Alexis Regidor with visuals by Dimitri Thouzery for the album’s centerpiece, “Weavers’ Weft.”

The band shares this about the song:
“‘Weavers’ Weft’ is the song that opens the album’s second half. There was a tipping point in the narrative at the end of the first half of the album. The second half of the record is no longer situated in the linear flow of time that serves as a backdrop for many stories. From ‘Weaver’s Weft’ onwards, time goes both into the past and into the future. The piece talks about weavers of the fabric of time, entities who continually create space-times, each containing its share of universes. Everything that exists is written there, and it is possible to travel between frames. Everything is cyclical and infinite. To illustrate this (or maybe it’s the other way around?), we wanted something monolithic and timeless. It is as if this song has been sung for millennia (time goes back to the past!). The heavier parts are inspired by bands like Part Chimp and Gnod.”
