PENDANT (SADDLE CREEK) DROPS NEW VIDEO & SINGLE FROM UPCOMING LP
Los Angeles native Chris Adams who makes music under the moniker PENDANT (all caps) has dropped another song / video “Static Dream” from his forthcoming Saddle Creek debut Harp, available April 8th. Directed by Ramez Silyan (Lil Peep, The Neighbourhood, etc.) and starring Adams, the video is Trainspotting meets Terminator 2 (chase scene) soundtracked by a gripping mix of electronic pop and post-punk. Vocals are placed within the kinetic, brilliantly twisted soundscape like an additional instrument, always in service of Adams’ surreal and anti-gravitational world, a world brought to life by the video. He notes of the song “I wrote Static Dream after seeing my late father in my sleep one night. The dream was chaotic and sad but over the following day I felt a closeness to him I hadn’t felt since his passing. It felt like a new memory I was able to forge with him outside of space and time.”
