JeGong is the amalgamation of two distinct forces within post-rock and heavy music, Dahm Cipolla, drummer of MONO (Japan) and Reto Mäder of Sum Of R. Bursting with new ideas, the group’s energies focus on the crossroads between ambient, experimental, kraut and post-rock, while blazing trails with their electronic-forward approach.
Their debut album I is out next Friday via Pelagic Records and today they’ve shared new single “Ghost City” alongside its video which completes their visual trilogy surrounding the release. JeGong explain, “In ‘Ghost City‘ we wanted different elements to collide with each other. It was not about the destructive collision as such, but about the calm and awakening afterwards. A collision as a means to an end.”
The videos for Stable Off, Sowing Dragons Teeth and Ghost City form a three-part chronologic series that creates a dystopia in which the world is recreated by a species after the collapse, with a monolith as a memorial for the downfall. JeGong note “‘Ghost City‘ is the beginning and tells the story of an abandoned city and its ghosts in the form of floating particles that will transform into a new species in the near future.” Watch all three videos in order here:
