Watch :: Russian Baths - Poolhouse
Words: Sam Geary
After they dropped us 'Slenderman' at the start of the year, Brooklyn's Russian Baths have just released a new video for their single 'Poolhouse'.
Taken from their debut EP 'Penance', out now through Good Eye Records, the noise-rockers' combine a sense of other-worldliness strangely enough amidst their squalls of dissonance, largely through Jess Rees’ compelling vocals.
The clip, done in one take, focuses on Rees singing straight to camera, as water drips down on top of her.
"'Poolhouse’," say the band of the track, "is about an existential crisis. It’s about feeling so overwhelmed that you can’t see the way out. It’s about moments of calm and hope being submerged in waves of pressure. It’s about losing your breath because of fear."
