Alexis Marshall, front man for that band Daughters, has released a video for his new single “Open Mouth” from his upcoming solo album ‘House Of Lull . House Of When .” out July 23rd via Sargent House.
The video for the song has been directed by John Bradburn and a magnificent performance by Charlie Greenwood.
House Of Lull . House Of When is an album crafted around moments of spontaneity and sonic detritus. Produced by Seth Manchester in Pawtucket, Rhode Island at Machines with Magnets, Marshall brought together an impressive group of collaborators to execute his vision in Jon Syverson (Daughters), Evan Patterson (Jaye Jayle, Young Widows). With no material solidified prior to their arrival, the strategy was to embrace new sounds, employ the element of chance, and capture the creative process in a song format. The genesis of a song could be anything—a fragmented piano line, a drum pattern—but the impetus was often a non-musical sound. Marshall sourced a lot of his textural contributions from a hardware store all contributing to a proto-industrial rattle-and-rumble.
