Permanent Vacation :: ChurchCough And Nathan Bailey Combine Forces For ‘Off’

When ConductHer and NonsenseSpence first joined up to form ChurchCough, I was immediately interested in their approach and aesthetic… it reminded me of the most free spirited aspects of bands like Yacht and Hot Chip.  The beats are tight and driving, but the vocals are sparse and stream of consciousness.    Their debut video, Creek, was a nice thunderclap in the distance… a sense that a storm was coming.  For Off, the crew reconnected with Nathan Bailey, and this time you’re dropped right into the eye of the hurricane of creativity.  The video is driven by a handful of strong images, immaculate lighting and a sense of purpose that comes off as a statement piece.  If this is an indication of what’s to come for ChurchCough, I’m doubling down on my seat for this ride.
