The debut music video from electronic duo Miracle provides the ideal visual backdrop to their new track 'The Visitor' on cult label House Anxiety (Big Pink, Zoo Kid etc), manifesting itself as a sumptuously atmospheric video with an unexpected twist. The stylish take on synthy electro pop from the two art-rock icons Steve Moore (Zombi, Titan) and Daniel O’ Sullivan of Guapo, Ulver, and Sunn O))) shows a departure from their past sounds. Dazed here premieres the new video for the track as shot by Blake Claridge, the director behind videos for James Blake, Alex Clare et al.
