Former Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore has released a new video for "Heavenmetal," a track from his latest band Chelsea Light Moving's debut self-titled album. "Heavenmetal" is a tranquil display of Moore's new sound, a laid back jam akin to nineties indie and alternative rock more than Sonic Youth's earlier, louder offerings. The lyrics sound almost like a spoken-word stream of consciousness -- slightly rambling poetry that doesn't conform to the rhythm and melody of the song at points.

The video is a washed-out dreamscape, intercutting Moore's guitar playing with scenes of newspaper clipping and zine production, even more throwbacks to the nineties aesthetic. The song ends abruptly, creating an interesting jump out of the dreamy imagery and sound.
