Balance and Composure – Jon Simmons (vocals, guitar), Erik Petersen (guitar), Andy Slaymaker (guitar, backing vocals), Matt Warner (bass) and Bailey Van Ellis (drums) – have released a new video for “Postcard,” the first single from their innovative third album, Light We Made (out October 7th Vagrant Records). The video was directed by Jason Michael Roberts who created an interesting visual concept utilizing special effects, which he explains:
“Working with Balance and Composure was an amazing experience. They had a pretty broad idea for ‘Postcard,’ but I want the audience to feel like tourists on a hallucinogenic, safari floating ride from room-to-room in an surreal world, observing the exotic imagery.” PRESS HERE to watch the video via Pitchfork.
Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a celebration of growth for the band, with a new ebb and flow sound dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks, which complements their previous body of work.
Balance and Composure will bring their live set on the road this fall for a North American headline tour, plus will make an appearance at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago, and will open for Hum on September 24th in Pomona, CA. All tour dates listed below.
