The quite breathtaking “The Riverbed” is the first full track released from Owen Pallett’s new album, ‘In Conflict’ (release date of 12th May 2014), and showcases a more brutal tone of songwriting from Pallett with a building arrangement that ratchets the tension in its frenetic build. Appropriately, the accompanying video compliments the mood with its own dramatic struggle. The Eva Michon directed clip was filmed in Los Angeles and stars career actor Jim Pallett as the protagonist. Owen himself also has a small role in the video as “Jerk #4.” “Typical Hollywood bullshit,” Owen says, about having his supporting role cut down to a mere few frames.
Owen Pallettwill be touring North America and Europe with his band throughout the month of May. Dates are as follows:
13th May 2014 – Brooklyn, NY : Glasslands (with Doldrums)
