Ancient Sky’s New Video By ZZ Ramirez of The Ukiah Drag

Ancient Sky hit us with a new sinister video for their single “Two Lights” from Mosaic – their latest release on Wharf Cat Records. “Two Lights” was directed by ZZ Ramirez from The Ukiah Drag.

Mosaic was recorded and produced by Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Hubble, ex The Men) and captures the massive scale of Ancient Sky’s live sound for the first time pivoting around such heavy themes as loss, hypnosis, escapism, poverty, the pressure to conform to terrifying new technologies and modern consumerism’s catalytic contribution to the growing disparity between the haves and the have-nots.

Ancient Sky have been exploring the wide sonic boundaries of rock music for nearly a decade, drawing inspiration from artists as seminal and diverse as Delta bluesman Skip James, early Pink Floyd, the darker corners of modern ambient represented by Demdike Stare, Pye Corner Audio et al and the ubiquitous influence of heavy Brits such as Hawkwind and Black Sabbath. But to define them simply by their acclaimed progenitors-as impressively curated as the list may be-would be to rob the band members of their own incontrovertible creative drive and a southern-bred, city-tempered history that’s as much a celebration of devoted friendship and blue-collar dedication as it is an acknowledgment of the importance of diverse influences and open minds.
