Storm Corrosion release Drag Ropes music video
have released a music video for ‘ ’ which appears on their self-titled debut album. The album, which is out on the 7th May, is a collaboration between Steven Wilson of and Mikael Akerfeldt of .
“We never discussed what we were going to do,” recalls Akerfeldt. “I went down to hang out at Steven’s house and we drank wine and talked about music, but neither of us had anything prepared. We wrote the song ‘Drag Ropes’ that first night, and we both thought it was pretty cool. We’d never heard anything like it and it doesn’t really sound like our bands. We found our own niche, right then and there.”
“It was special, different and intriguing,” agrees Wilson. “We ran in the opposite direction of the idea of a prog metal supergroup that people had been talking about and expecting from us. It was a chance to delve into more experimental ideas. We were being wilfully self-indulgent in the best possible way, making music to please ourselves. There’s something wonderfully pure and liberating about that you can hear that in these songs.”
