Montreal duo Solar Year premiere their hypnotic video for “Magic Idea” today with Dummy Mag directed by the very talented Jamie Harley (Twin Shadow, How To Dress Well Cymbals Eat Guitars, and so many more).
The single is the B-side to Night & Day 7″ which is now available on iTunes and as a limited physical pressing via Stratosfear Recordings. Solar Year’s debut full-length Waverly is due out this Spring on Ceremony in North America and Splendour in Europe, more details on that to follow.
Solar Year emerged as a tour de force this summer with their break-out single”Brotherhood” landing praise across the board from the likes of Pitchfork and Gorilla vs. Bear and following up the track with a gorgeous and emotional video for “Brotherhood” directed by artist and friend Emily Kai Bock.
After making a strong showing at CMJ, members Ben Borden and David Ertel compiled a mind-blowing FADER Mix entitled “Heaven & Hell” before dropping the Night & Day 7″ early this year. Solar Year will be making appearances at SXSW, showcase announcements coming soon.
