L.A.’s Paige Emery is a musician and painter who isn’t afraid to mix everything together. At her live shows, she performs while lit by a projection of her visual and video art, and in this video for her new single “Sinksand,” she’s again working on several levels at once. “Sinksand” is a minimal-gone-maximal synth (but not synth pop) song that might fit nicely next to brutalist bands like Berlin’s P1/E, with a deliriously hallucinatory video designed to complement (or amplify) the waves of echo and delay in the song. Produced by Emery and filmed by L.A. RECORD featuree Mukta Mohan, it’s a total expression of the conflicting connections between confusion/isolation/obligation and of course that resulting feeling of sinking, literalized in some high-contrast beach scenes. (More waves, of course.) If you ever felt more alone in a crowd than when you’re by yourself, there might be a lot here that makes sense.
