The Morelings “Too Far” video
Philadelphia dream-pop duo, The Morelings, have released a mesmerizing new video for “Too Far,” the second of their three-song EP No Sign issued in January of this year.
A watery dreamscape of ephemeral beauty, directed by Detroit-based artist, Santa Anna, the video takes place on a beach at sunset in the last shimmers of summer sun. “Too Far” beckons 1960’s French cinema with it’s “found” footage feel as vocalist/bassist Kedra Caroline gives a sensual, siren-like performance of longing, cautioning: “Might you lose it if you lean in much too far?”
Kedra: “Santa was a dream director/editor. We had the same vision and that felt great.”
In keeping with their first video, “Less,” The Morelings use multi-layered imagery, aptly evoking this watery song of both dark and glistening guitar lines, a hypnotic, electronic snare and sparse, haunting vocal melodies. Oscillating between land and sea, dune and wave, “Too Far” washes and waves with cosmic brilliance in a realm where the heart rules and the sea takes all.
“The Morelings began entrancing audiences with their ethereal sound in the summer of 2014. They then joined forces with Kyle “Slick” Johnson of Fancy Time Studio to record their hypnotic and shimmering debut EP, No Sign. This summer, they toured the East Coast and Midwest and now, as a follow up to No Sign, are recording their first full-length album with Philadelphia producer Jeff Zeigler (The War on Drugs, Nothing, A Sunny Day in Glasgow). The Morelings recently released a cover song of “Lonesome Tonight” for a New Order tribute album called Dreams Never End.”
