Friends and countrymen, we are gathered here today to discuss the wealth of brilliance and creativity manifested in Sydney duo Fishing’s ethereal single “Choy Lin” and its dreamlike official video. Fully electronic, the jam boasts the muffled vocal harmonization that we’ve become used to hearing in witch house tunes that are steadily growing in popularity. Non-Western synth leads accompany deeply varied percussion beats, making for an epic, soundtrack-esque three-and-a-half minutes. The bright, frozen flute synth tracks towards the end bring the experimental “Choy Lin” to a dark, crashing conclusion. The mini-story represented in the gloriously crafted video that was produced, directed, and edited by Fishing themselves (aided by SPOD) is to the uninitiated viewer one of a boy warrior who undertakes a harrowing rescue mission and tragically fails to salvage the lives of his friends, plunging to a bloody, watery grave amid the fading strains. We’re not sure how much of the video is digital, but the lush collage landscapes cut and pasted with seemingly found materials are refreshingly fun to watch and re-watch, much like a Michel Gondry short film. Beautiful, surreal, and plaintive, do tha right thing and watch the official video for Fishing’s “Choy Lin” above, and then grab a free download of the single below. Afterwards, ready your hearts and minds for the upcoming self-titled 7”, due out on October 23rd via Waaga Records, if vinyl is your thing and you like to support the work of innovative audio and visual artists.
