SLIFT share short film for new single “Weaver’s Weft”

Author Flavia Andrade - 4.1.2024

Psych rockers SLIFT have premiered a sci-fi short film for “Weavers’ Weft“, the latest single to emerge from the French band before their third studio album, “ILION“, out on January 19, via Sub Pop Records. 

Now, on the heels of the previously released singles “Ilion” and “Nimh,” comes the music video by Guthio and Alexis Regidor with visuals by Dimitri Thouzery for the album’s centerpiece, “Weavers’ Weft.”

The band says:

Weavers’ Weft’ is the song that opens the album’s second half. There was a tipping point in the narrative at the end of the first half of the album. The second half of the record is no longer situated in the linear flow of time that serves as a backdrop for many stories. From ‘Weaver’s Weft’ onwards, time goes both into the past and into the future. The piece talks about weavers of the fabric of time, entities who continually create space-times, each containing its share of universes. Everything that exists is written there, and it is possible to travel between frames. Everything is cyclical and infinite. To illustrate this (or maybe it’s the other way around?), we wanted something monolithic and timeless. It is as if this song has been sung for millennia (time goes back to the past!). The heavier parts are inspired by bands like Part Chimp and Gnod.
