Cross Record, also known as Emily Cross, has shared a video for “High Rise,” the latest track taken from her forthcoming album Wabi-Sabi, out January 29th via Ba Da Bing Records.

Self-created by Cross and husband Dan Duszynski one muggy October morning before she left for work, Cross bizarrely merges with the Dripping Springs landscape of their Moon Phase Ranch home. Awkward body contortions become alien dance moves, as Cross’ eerie, distorted presence commandeers the imagery. Cross approaches videos as integral pieces of her albums, and “High Rise”s sonic intensity is the primary inspiration. She also tosses in a chainsaw for good measure.

Cross recorded Wabi-Sabi on that above mentioned 18 acre ranch, complete with a chicken coop and adjoining bird sanctuary. Interacting and adapting to new environments is a theme that permeates this smoky, atmospheric sophomore album. Wabi-Sabi can be unsettling and loud with a dark intensity of booming drums, thick guitar and destabilized electronics, but also more contemplative and serene, emphasizing Cross’ wispy, silvery singing and minimal presentation. And, as seen by the video, it’s a captivating crystallization of Cross’ passion for music and visual art.
