New Video: Go On a Trip In the Clouds with Evening Elevator

New York-based indie electro pop act Evening Elevator is a new collaborative project featuring a pair of the city’s accomplished artists — singer/songwriter Tim Segreto and Dub Sonata, a producer, who has worked with Jidenna, Rhymefest and Sage Francis. Their latest single “Higher” is a slow-burning yet cinematic track, centered around a soaring vocal sample, shimmering synths, twinkling keys, a dramatic string sample and thumping beats paired with Segreto’s plaintive vocals. The end result is a song that’s hypnotic and expansive in a way that would draw comparisons to Bonobo, The Beat Escape and others — while evoking the sensation of a waking dream.

Filmed by Dub Sonata, the recently released video for Higher” takes the viewer on a trip over the foggy hills of Northern California.
