Exclusive premiere of the video for title track of Portugese duo's forthcoming fourth album out on Software

Lo-fi ambient noise due Tropa Macaca have their fourth album, Ectoplasma (artwork above), coming out on August 20 via Software, Joel Ford and Dan Lopatin's label.

A movement of repetition, a gesture of renewed conviction everytime you begin the sentence because it has just ended to begin again - they couldn’t stop moving it - is a pray for silence. Silence enshrines, treasures, Talk wastes, fritters."

Now, bearing that in mind, watch away:
