Taken from laptop trio's upcoming second album Buff As Fuck

Coming fresh out of their former handbag factory studio in Norfolk, here's the first, Dan Tombs-directed video from electronic trio Transept's forthcoming second album, the elegantly-titled Buff As Fuck. Emerging out of a hefty slab of grizzly keyboard manipulation, a phased chord sequence revolves around under martial snare raps, forging something almost akin to Mogwai's 'I Know You Are But What Am I?'. Here, though, the sonic layering's even heavier, with choral harmonies getting submerged into the mix, forming a concrete, grinding slab of laptop noise.

Buff As Fuck is out on March 25 via Dronehenge Records on CD, download and "clear frosted vinyl" with "screen-printed covers". Nice.
