A Delicate Motor release ambient music video for “Durham”

Cincinnati experimental-pop band A Delicate Motor will be releasing their debut album Fellover My Own on June 29th via SofaBurn Records, but today you can watch the music video for the single “Durham.” The video premiered at PopMatters and takes a live session approach, adding even more atmosphere to the already ambient track. The gentle, soothing sound patterns act against the worried, existential lyrics from frontman Adam Petersen.

‘Durham delivers refreshing momentum, right in the middle of the album,” says Petersen. “The piece comes from an improvisation with drummer Ben Sloan, rendered live at an intimate house concert in Durham, NC. Stems from that original improvisation are incorporated into this track’s production, and the latter half of the movement is illuminated by the guitar work of Stephen Patota. The lyrical content culminates from a quiet place of grief for the ailing of humanity, and the corruption of our planet.

Originally a solo, loop-based songwriting effort from Petersen, A Delicate Motor expanded to a full band last year for the creation of Fellover My Own. The record is an invitation to fall in love with who you are becoming. The messages here intend to relieve the listener from the paradox of falling over one’s own devices and instead begin to move with conscious choosing.
