London progressive alternative trio MOHIT have announced news of their debut 7” single ‘Racek/Discover Another’ set for release on 30th November 2018 on a heavyweight black vinyl pressing limited to 250 copies.

The band have also just announced a run of UK tour dates supporting Ought in November, with a short run of headline shows also coming up over the next few months.

To celebrate the news the band have shared a stunning animated video for lead single ‘Racek’ today, the first to be revealed from their recently-recorded debut album that saw the band working with producer Marta Salogni (Björk, M.I.A, Liars).

Commenting on the single, guitarist Toby Baxter said: “Racek encompasses the myth of the Siren, the death ritual of the seagull, and falling overboard into a storm-tossed ocean. The pulse of the waves, beating drums, and swelling harmonies all come to a head in this song.”

The video was illustrated and animated by Jaron Lionel, who said of the process: “After listening to Racek, the narrative led the way for the creative process. I wanted to illustrate it in a very ethereal & dream-like way to complement the textures and dynamics of the track.

“To achieve this, I let all my inhibitions go in terms of ‘how’ I was going to animate this. Instead, I chose to use a lot of different techniques and methods: stop-frame, hand drawn/painted, digital, video, photography, vivid, pastel, black and white—pairings that you might not necessarily see in one place, in one video.”

‘Racek/Discover’ another is released 30th November 2018
