Editor's note: The song was first released as an audio stream on January 12th, 2016.
Indie psychedelic rockers Quilt have shared a music video for "Roller," a song from their upcoming album, Plaza. Watch it above.
Singer Anna Fox Rochinski spoke with FADER about how the tune came about and its meaning:
I wrote it at my cottage in upstate N.Y., where I live alone. during the winter of 2015, which was long and snowy and often fell below zero degrees. Feeling stuck, frustrated with a partner or any kind of relationship, or just other people in general. Being a "roller" to me is a sensation that lies somewhere between claiming strength for yourself and hiding to protect yourself from the human bullshit of the world. Ultimately, it's a rumination on seeking peace through isolation.
The song is a shimmering indie rock gem with timely placed guitar riffs, swirling bass lines, Rochinski's soft, but determined, vocals, and a hint of spacey sound effects. There's a sense of openness towards the end that could allow the band to stretch the song and really jam out, if they choose.
Fox also spoke with Noisey about the video:
I spent the holiday season developing a concept with Adi Putra about a strange, semi-dysfunctional family. The idea originally stemmed from our conversations about our favorite films that demonstrate a family structure that is interrupted by an outside presence and/or has some extremely strange things brewing underneath an otherwise normal surface. I play a disillusioned daughter in a traditionally structured nuclear family, who maintains a relationship with these mysterious apparitions as an escape from her family and a way to feel like she belongs somewhere. It is never made quite clear if they are a figment of her imagination or not, but either way they sure have some cool dance moves. Shane, John and Keven and I are all siblings with these identical twin kid sisters and a mom and dad. I really love Adi's aesthetic and his appreciation for all things surreal, strange and yet deeply emotional. We were all instantly drawn to his work and had a blast shooting the video in Venice, CA with Adi and his crew.
Plaza is set for a February 26, 2016 release via Mexican Summer Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
